Caption: A male and female fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster. These specimens are of the wild type, known as Oregon R. D. melanogaster has for many years been the subject of genetic experiments, particularly on mutation, because it was easy to raise in large numbers & reproduces rapidly. The waist between the head & thorax is characteristic of flies, allowing some mobility. The head carries the large multifaceted compound eyes. The antennae are reduced to small fleshy pads with bristle-like extensions called aristas. Bristles, or setae, cover the body.
