Caption: Nettle aphid (Microlophium carnosum), artwork. This is a winged adult female. It is able to reproduce by parthenogenesis (asexually), giving birth to pregnant offspring. This phenomenon is known as telescoping generations. The generation of young produced by winged adults are able to reproduce sexually. The red eyes of its young can be seen inside the body.
