Caption: Colour enhanced scanning electron micrograph of the evaporation disk of a damsel bug (family Nabidae), magnified 4000x at 8 x 10 . The evaporation disk is a mass of channels and pads designed to quickly evaporate chemical attractants or repellents which exude from a nearby gland between the hind legs. Evaporation disks are also found on plant bugs (Muridae) and shield bugs (Pentatomidae).
