Caption: Moth fly antenna. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the antenna of a moth fly (also known as an owl midge), Psychoda sp.. The moth fly's antennae are paired, segmented, and covered in sensory hairs. Moth flies appear very much like tiny moths. Their larvae live in the regions between land and water, where they obtain both moisture and food, which consists mainly of bacteria living in slimy, damp surroundings. Sewage works are a favourite habitat, where larvae feed on particles of excrement trapped by the sewage filters. Magnification: x271 at 6x7cm size. Magnification: x950 at 8x10"size.
