Description: Caption:
This digitally colorized scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed on the ventral surface of a bedbug, Cimex lectularius. In this view, a beautiful diaphanous structure is highlighted, which is thought to be a scent gland, or related to the dissemination of pheromones. Also, see PHIL 11741, 11742, and 11743 for successively greater magnifications of this marvelous structure.
