... stimuli such as herbivore-induced fig volatiles and CO 2 elicited electrophysiological responses from the ovipositors. Silver nitrate staining also revealed pores in ovipositor sensilla, indicating their olfactory nature. Insects could use volatile sensors on their ovipositors to evaluate ecologically...

...DeForest Mellon, Jr SUMMARY The antennular flagella of the crayfish Procambarus clarkii each possess a linear array of near-field receptors, termed standing feathered sensilla, that are extremely sensitive to movement of the surrounding water. Previously it had been shown that, within each...

... for Manduca larvae is the steroidal glycoside, indioside D. Two pairs of galeal taste sensilla, the lateral and medial sensilla styloconica, are both necessary and sufficient for the feeding preferences of host-restricted larvae. We conducted electrophysiological tip recordings from sensilla of solanaceous...

... to the escape behaviour was localized on specific veins of the hindwing tip. Scanning electron microscopy revealed three types of mechanoreceptive sensillae on the corresponding region. Based on their morphology, type I and type III sensillae were judged to be trichoid and chaetic sensillae, respectively. Type...
