Coloured SEM of Rose aphid nymph feeding on a leaf

Rose aphid nymph. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a Rose aphid nymph Macrosiphon rosae feeding on a rose leaf. This wingless nymph is an immature form of the adult aphid. Known as plant lice, aphids are specialised plant feeders that suck the sap from plant veins. At centre is the head with long antennae, compound eyes, and a tube-like sucking mouthpart (proboscis). The pro- boscis is penetrating the leaf surface while it feeds. There are three pairs of walking legs; at the posterior end of the body are two short tubes called cornicles which secrete pheromones and waxes. Macrosiphon rosae feeds on domestic roses.
