Description:Caption:
Under a magnification of 113X, twice that of PHIL 10050, this scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image depicted some of the exoskeletal morphologic characteristics displayed on the head region of an unidentified beetle found deceased in the suburbs of Decatur, Georgia. In this particular view, two segments of one of this insect’s two antennae were visible. Created at the distal fracture point, was a cup-like cavitation, into which would have fit this organ's most distal flagellar segment. The antenna is composed of three main regions: scape, pedicle, and flagellum. The scape, which is not visible in this view, attaches the sensory organ to the head region, and the pedicle joins the distal, segmented flagellum to the scape.
