Caption: Fungus gnat. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a fungus gnat (family Sciaridae). At centre left is one of the gnat's compound eyes, which is formed of many small lenses (ommatidia, round). Between the eyes are two antennae, sensory organs used for touch and smell. Below these are the gnat's mouthparts. Fungus gnats are common household pests as they lay their eggs in the soil of houseplants. Magnification: x95 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
