Caption: Crab filter-feeding structures. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of filtering structures (setae) that are part of the feeding structures of a crab (order Decapoda). These setae (brush- like structures) are part of the crab's mouthparts (maxillipeds). They are used to filter food particles from the water. Crabs are crustaceans, found in both saltwater and freshwater habitats worldwide.
