Caption

Colorado potato beetle. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the larva of a Colorado potato beetle (Leptinotarsa decemlineata). This agricultural pest hatches from an egg laid on the underside of a potato leaf, and begins to feed. Once fully grown after 2-3 weeks, it burrows into the soil and transforms into a pupa which survives the winter. The adult beetle emerges in the spring to feed on newly sprouted potato plants before female beetles lay more eggs. Magnification unknown.
