... of holometabolous (Endopterygota) insects within the order Diptera. We show that crustacean cardioactive peptide (CCAP), FMRFamide and SALDKNFMRFamide increase the contraction rate of the antennal APOs and the heart of Anopheles gambiae . Both antennal hearts are synchronously responsive to these neuropeptides...

...A. ROLAND ENNOS 1. The magnitude and distribution of the torques caused by inertial and aerodynamic forces on the wings of Diptera in flight are calculated. 2. The bending torque at stroke reversal due to the inertia of the virtual mass of air bound to the wing is only slightly less than the torque...

...A. ROLAND ENNOS The cause of the changes in wing pitch at stroke reversal in Diptera has been investigated. The high compliance of the wing base makes it seem unlikely that pitch changes are caused by active torsion at the wing articulation. The centre of mass of insect wings tends to be behind...
