Caption: Aphid. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an aphid on a leaf. This bug (order: Homoptera) is also known as a plant louse or greenfly. Its head is seen with long antennae and two compound eyes (right). The tube-like mouthpart penetrates the plant and is used to suck the sap from plant veins. Two projecting cornicles, or horn-shaped tubes, at the posterior of the body (left) emit a waxy secretion. Three pairs of walking legs are present. Aphids multiply rapidly. They are serious pests of flowers, vegetables and some fruit trees. Magnification: x44 at 5x7 cm size. Magnification; x155 at 8x10 " size.
