dc.description.abstractHydrotaea chalcogaster is a fly species of medical and forensic importance in many parts of the world. In this study, we investigated the sensilla of the antenna and palp of the adult female fly using scanning electron microscopy. The antennal scape has one type of sensillum, the sharp-tipped sensillum trichodeum; whereas, the antennal pedicel also possessed this type of sensillum in addition to an unidentified type. Three types of sensilla were found on the flagellum: (1) sensilla basiconica, with both large and small sensilla basiconica showing wall pores, (2) sensilla coeloconica, with a smooth surface, and (3) sensory pits, with wall pores of pegs. The arista is located dorso-laterally on the flagellum and has three segments. Short microtrichia are located around the distal end of its second segment and on the proximal half of the third segment. Both large sharp-tipped sensilla chaetica and small sensilla basiconica with wall pores were observed on the palps. Results of this study contribute to our overall understanding of the ultrastructural morphology of sensilla on the antenna and palp of H. chalcogaster. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.en_US
