Caption: Brochosomes on a leafhopper. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of brochosomes (red) on the body of a leafhopper (family Cicadellidae). Brochosomes are intricately structured microscopic granules secreted by leafhoppers and typically found on their body surface that make their body highly water repellent. Magnification: x5000 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
