First ultrastructural investigation of the pharynx apparatus of Scutigera coleoptrata (Chilopoda: Notostigmophora)


Abstract

The organisation and possible function of the pharynx apparatus of Scutigera coleoptrata was first described in 1967 by Seifert. The pharynx apparatus in the foregut of S. coleoptrata consists of a ballshaped outgrowth of the dorsal pharyngeal wall, the pistil, and a cooperating ventral groove, the pharynx furrow. Here we present new structural details of the pistil and the pharynx furrow with its underlying epithelium, using LM, TEM, and SEM techniques.

Keywords
