Caption: Aphid defensive reaction. Footage of an aphid being touched to provoke a defensive secretion of fluid (black) from its siphunculi. Also known as cornicles, these structures have an opening or pore from which pheromones are emitted, often as the liquid globules seen here. This defensive fluid is known as cornicle wax.
