This photomicrograph depicts on the left, an unhatched egg of a head louse, Pediculus humanus var. capitis, still attached to a human hair shaft, and on the right an immature organism, otherwise referred to as a nymph. You are able to see the red-colored eyespots of the louse embryo developing inside the egg.
