Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Pubic louse -Pthirus pubis. The pubic louse (also called the crab louse) has legs with curved claws that are adapted to climbing along hairs. It can be found in eyebrows, pubic hair, beards, moustaches, underarm hair and even on eyelashes. The individual louse can survive for about 24 hours apart from its necessary human host, so that crab lice can be passed on in sleeping bags and bedding. The louse feeds on blood and can leave irritating spots on the skin. Magnification: x16 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
