Surface ultrastructure of larval mouthpart
sensilla of the muga silkmoth, Antheraea assamensis, an endemic species of north- east India.
Specialization of mouthparts
plays a significant role in insect pest species, presumably to act as an internal/external feeder on the host.
Electron micrographs of mite mouthpart
besides assisting in taxonomy and morphology studies can also assist in better understanding the feeding behaviour of these organisms.
The external Morphology of the head mouthparts
of some Philipine Orthoptera.
Dickens and postdoctoral research associate Jackson Sparks are working to distinguish other receptors located on the mouthparts
and legs of mosquitoes and determine their molecular genetic functions.
From the view of bionic, imitating the structure of insect's sucking mouthparts
to create a bionic needle.
of lysianassid amphipods are not typically adapted to algal grazing (Arndt et al.
We recognize that differences in the magnitude of mouthpart
deformation may differentially impact feeding kinematics and also foraging performance.
Differences in the morphology and structure of mouthparts
and pereiopods of crayfish are useful in classifying them for systematic purposes.
They use their piercing-sucking mouthpart
to penetrate the epithelium and suck the host blood.
The head, which includes a pair of compound eyes and mouthparts
, carries antennae that can sense certain chemicals.
Chironomidae are an abundant and vital part of aquatic ecosystems worldwide and their mouthpart
morphology is the only reliable way to identify most species.
