Caption: Yellow dung fly head. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a yellow dung fly (Scatophaga stercoraria). At bottom centre are the mouthparts, showing the proboscis (pink) and sensory palps (above the proboscis). The antennae (pink) are seen at top centre. At upper right and left are the two compound eyes (brown), which are made up of many individual ommatidia (spheres). Yellow dung flies lay their eggs in cowpats, which the larvae feed on. Adult yellow dung flies feed on other flies, not dung.
