Caption

Silk moth antenna. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the tip of an antenna of a silk moth (Bombyx mori). The antennae are used by the moths to find breeding partners and produce eggs to hatch the next generation of sillkworms. The silkworm, the caterpillar of the silkworm moth, feeds on mulberry leaves. When it is ready to pupate, the silkworm produces threads of silk with which it constructs a cocoon. The silkworm is farmed for the silk, obtained from the cocoons, which is woven into cloth. The silk moth is the adult (winged) stage of the life cycle. Magnification: x40 when printed at 10 centimetres across.
