    Descriptions of the antennal structures of the millipede Trigoniulus macropygus (Silvestri, 1897) (Spirobolida: Trigoniulidae) and centipede Scolopendra subspinipes (Leach, 1815) (Scolopendromorpha: Scolopendridae) using scanning electron microscopy
    Vol. 23, Issue 1, 2020

    Abstract:The antenna is one of the major channels for sensory reception vital for gathering environmental information. An antenna mainly consists of a scape, pedicel, and repeating segments of flagellomeres which collectively constitute the antennomere. These are covered with tiny hair-like projections called sensilla or sensory bristles which greatly increase the surface area of sensory reception. Structural imaging of the antennal features of Trigoniulus macropygus and Scolopendra subspinipes using sca...
