Description: Caption:
Under a magnification of 111X, this scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image depicted some of the exoskeletal characteristics displayed on the head region of an unidentified beetle found in the suburbs of Decatur, Georgia. In this particular view, the distal segments of the insect’s left antenna were highlighted. The antennae are composed of a proximal scape, a single pedicle, and the distal, segmented flagellum. The scape attaches the sensory organ to the head region, and the pedicle joins the distal, jointed, flagellum to the scape. .
