Caption: Head of a midge larva. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of the head and mouthparts of a midge larva. At upper frame are a pair of short jointed antennae; two sets of powerful serrated mouthparts are seen (at centre, centre left). Hairs serve as organs of touch. Midges are small delicate flies that gather in vast swarms near standing water. The larvae typically live in water, feeding on algae or detritus, and occasionally they are predatory. Magnification: x380 at 5x7cm size.
