ID#:11735
Description:Caption:
This digitally colorized scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image revealed some of the morphology displayed on the dorsal exoskeletal surface of a bedbug, Cimex lectularius. What appeared to be hair, was not hair at all, but sensory structures known as setae, and are composed of chitin, the same material as the rest of this organism’s exoskeleton. The raspberry-like structures on either side of the bedbug’s head, are its two compound eyes.
