Abstract

The integument and sensilla of the abdominal segments II–VII, together with the tracheal and nerve supply, are described in so far as they can be seen using whole mounts. Such a method often enables the neurons of the sensilla to be seen clearly and to be associated definitely with a certain cuticular structure. The sensilla are compared with those already known from the palps, and it is concluded that probably all those on the abdomen also occur on the palps.
