Ultrastructure of the antennal sensillae of male and female peach fruit fly, Bactrocera zonata.

Awad AA, Ali NA, Mohamed HO - J. Insect Sci. (2014)

Bottom Line: This study focused on the sensillae found on the antennal segments (scape, pedicel, and flagellum or funiculus that bears the arista) of B. zonata.Numerous microtrichia as well as trichoid (I, II), basiconic, clavate, and coeloconic sensillae were observed on the funiculus.The sensillae found on the funiculus, such as trichoid and basiconic sensillae, were significantly larger in females.

Scanning electron micrograph of the pedicel of male (A) and female (B) Bactrocera zonata showing different types of sensilla. TrI, II: trichoid sensilla type 1, 2; BsII: basiconica sensilla type 2; Ch: cheatica sensilla. Campaniform sensilla only on the pedicel of male. High quality figures are available online.

f03_01: Scanning electron micrograph of the pedicel of male (A) and female (B) Bactrocera zonata showing different types of sensilla. TrI, II: trichoid sensilla type 1, 2; BsII: basiconica sensilla type 2; Ch: cheatica sensilla. Campaniform sensilla only on the pedicel of male. High quality figures are available online.

Mentions: B) The pedicel (P; second antennal segment). The pedicel is a cone-like structure that measures ∼284.5 µm in its maximum length, slightly longer than the scape, movable with scape to allow the movement of antenna. It is reinforced and fringed with many types of sensilla (Table 3, Figure 3A, B). The total number of sensilla observed in males was greater than in females. Numerous microtrichia as well as trichoid (TrI, II), cheatica, and basiconica (II) sensilla were observed on the pedicel.
