  journal={Cell and Tissue Research},
The ultrastructure of the sensory receptors located on the labium of the rice brown planthopper is described; possible functions of individual receptors are suggested on morphological grounds. Uniporous chemosensilla which may or may not possess a mechanoreceptive dendrite, domed multiporous chemosensilla, and mechanoreceptive pegs are present on the flattened labial tip. Mechanoreceptive pegs are distributed over the labium. The fine structure of a multilobed sensillum located on either side… CONTINUE READING
