Caption

Smell receptors (dark pits) on a moth's antenna, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Many moths attract mates by emitting pheromones into the air, which can be detected by the antennae. Male moths typically have large feathery antennae to maximise the number of smell receptors for detecting airborne female pheromones. Magnification: x1100 when printed 10cm high.
