Studies on the shootborer Hypsipyla grandella (Zeller) (Lep., Pyralidae). XIX. The antenna of insects as an electromagnetic sensory organ


, : Studies on the shootborer Hypsipyla grandella (Zeller) (Lep., Pyralidae). XIX. The antenna of insects as an electromagnetic sensory organ. Turrialba 23(3): 263-274

In this further part of a series from Costa Rica, the author outlines research on insect antennae as receptors of infrared radiation and discusses the configuration of the antennal sensilla of Hypsipyla grandella (Zell.). These are of the same types as those found in Heliothis zea (Boddie) Of particular interest are the picket-fence sensors (coeloconica) which are thought to act as detectors for the infrared signal emitted by moths and chopped by their wings.
