Caption: Springtail ocelli. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of part of the head of a springtail insect (Order Collembola) showing primitive eyes (ocelli, black) and sensory hairs (white). Springtails are primitive, wingless insects, often referred to as 'living fossils' because they have remained relatively unchanged for millions of years. Springtails are so called because of their ability to leap great distances by flicking their tails. Magnification: x3175 when printed 10cm wide.
