Caption: Moth foot. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the tip of a leg from a Geometer moth (family Geometridae). The end of an insect leg consists of the final segment, which is called the tarsus. The tarsus itself has several segments, and here ends in a pretarsus that has two claws (pink). Scales and hair-like sensory structures are also seen.
