The antennae of adult male Drilus mauritanicus carry on both faces numerous circular sponge-shaped perforated plates which correspond to the integumental glands. These are herein described for the first time in Coleoptera Drilidae. Their possible function is hypothesized. © 2015 Société entomologique de France

A study of the antennae of five species of Coleophora Hübner, 1822 (Coleophoridae) has been carried out by scanning electron microscope in order to determine the morphological types of sensilla and to compare these results with those obtained for C. obducta (Meyrick). In adult males, eight types of sensilla were observed on the flagellum: uniporous sensilla chaetica, multiporous sensilla trichodea, three types of multiporous sensilla basiconica, multiporous sensilla coeloconica, aporous sensilla styloconica and aporous sensilla squamiformia. In view of their morphology, sensilla chaetica are contact chemoreceptors, sensilla squamiformia are tactile mechanoreceptors, sensilla styloconica are thermo-hygroreceptors, and sensilla trichodea, basiconica and coeloconica are olfactive chemoreceptors. No sensilla placodea have been observed. These results differ partially from those previously described for C. obducta in regards to the interpretation of the structure and function of some sensilla.

A morphological study of the urticating apparatus in the last larval instar of Streblote panda Hübner, 1820 (Lepidoptera: Lasiocampidae) was undertaken using a scanning electron microscope. It is composed of two meso- and metathoracic crevices, accompanied by urticating hairs, which open when the caterpillar is threatened. The urticating hairs taper at both ends and are mostly smooth but ringed on their distal part, which also features about 400 pores allowing the urticating liquid to be released. © ZFMK.
