|JMOR_10897_sm_Suppinfo.tif||1901K||Supplement 1. Comparison of original and downsampled images calculated from synchrotron radiation-based x-ray microtomographic data of a female tritonymph of Pseudocellus pearsei. Figures A, C, E represent the original files (TIFF, 1535 × 1535 pixel, 72 dpi, 2.25 MB). Figures B, D, F show the downsampled images (JPG, 937 × 597 pixel, 100 dpi, 15 KB) used for the 3D-reconstruction with Amira (64-bit Version 4, Mercury Computer Systems, Berlin, Germany). A: Virtual transversal section of the anterior prosoma on the level of the coxae of the first legs. Note the clearly visible outline of the PARAPLAST block. The osmiumtetroxide treated specimen contrasts nicely from the embedding medium. B: The same virtual section, but downsampled and enlarged. Although the image quality is reduced, the specimen information is nearly identical. C: Virtual transversal section of the pedicel region. D: The same virtual section, but downsampled and enlarged. E: Virtual transversal section of the middle part of the opisthosoma. Note the inhomogenous contrast of this section. The arrow points to an area with weak contrast. This means that too less osmiumtetroxide has reached these tissues. The arrowheads indicate areas with too strong contrast. Too much osmiumtetroxide has accumulated in these parts. F: The same virtual section, but downsampled and enlarged.|
