Caption: Bat fly. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of larvae (white) on the outside of a female bat fly (Basilia nana). Bat flies are parasitic spider-like flies that feed on the blood of bats. They do not have eyes or wings and almost never leave the bodies of their hosts. It is typical of bat flies for their larvae to develop on the body of the mother, as seen here. Magnification: x4670 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
