Caption: Aphid. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an aphid. This insect belongs to the superfamily Aphidoidea and is also known as a plant louse or greenfly. Its head (at centre left) has a pair of long antennae and two compound eyes (red). Below the head is the beak or rostrum, containing the tube-like mouthpart that is used to penetrate the host plant to suck its sap. One of the two projecting cornicles which emit a waxy secretion can be seen at upper right. Three pairs of walking legs are present. Aphids multiply rapidly and are serious pests, transmitting viruses to flowers, vegetables and fruit trees. Magnification: x85 at 6x6cm size.
