Caption

Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Camel cricket dorsal abdomen exoskeleton (Pristoceuthophilus celatus). Note the fine surface exoskeleton pattern surrounding the seta. The seta is mechanosensory and detects movement. Camel crickets get their name because of their slightly humpbacked appearance. Their long legs give them a spider-like appearance. They have long antennae like most crickets. Unlike other crickets, they do not have wings as adults and they do not chirp. They are of little economic importance except as a nuisance in buildings and homes. Camel crickets are typically found in moist areas including under stones and logs, or in stacks of firewood. Magnification: x800 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
