Each chaetica sensillum was a "thornshaped", more rigid than a trichoid sensillum (TS), and with an acute apex.
Trichoid sensilla were mainly distributed on the clava of the antenna of adult males and females, and some were spread over the 3rd and 4th funicular segments both of the adult male and the adult female.
The uniporous trichoid sensillum lies on the central protuberance of the extreme end of the antenna of adult males and females.
16 with filiform trichoid sensillae and about 25 serrulae; serrulae at centre saddle-shaped, broadly rounded at apex, with about 3 or 4 flat, irregular posterior sub-basal teeth and one small anterior sub-basal tooth (Fig.
20 with short filiform trichoid sensillae, with about 19 serrulae; serrulae at centre prominent, broadly rounded at apex, with about 17-20 small, subbasal teeth (Fig.
Trichoid sensilla (ts) are normally the most common and numerous structures on insects' antennae.
Numerous microtrichia as well as trichoid, basiconic, styloconic, and clavate sensilla were observed on the funiculus.
44 [micro]m) and most conspicuous sensilla were of the trichoid type, which were thin, conic, sharply pointed, and had a smooth wall (Fig.
Eighth tergite rectangular, smaller than seventh, with anterior pair of trichoid sensilla and covered with setiform scales.
Male and female first through seventh tergites have 1 to 2 rows of posterior setae, several lateral setae, and a pair of anterior trichoid sensilla.
11-12): First through seventh tergites as for first through sixth in male, but seventh more diminutive than sixth; eighth tergite not pigmented, demarcated only by anterior pair of trichoid sensilla.
The 2 genera differ most conspicuously in that the adult abdomen of Tingidoletes is fusiform instead of evenly cylindrical, is much shorter due to the foreshortened instead of primatively large, rectangular sclerites, has lost most of the tergal lateral setae, and the male seventh tergite is membranous and without vestiture except for the anterior pair of trichoid sensilla.
