Caption: False colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head and undersurface of a predaceous ground beetle (family: Carabidae). Features of the head visible include the compound eyes and adjacent antennae (at top; left and right) and the mouthparts. Approximately 23,000 species of ground beetle exist in many regions of the world. They vary from 1mm to 10cm in length, and are variable in appearance, although most are coloured black. Most are predatory, and are able to move quickly: a few species are vegetarian. Magnification: X14 at 35mm size. Original is bw print z330/049.
