Fruit fly sex comb, SEM Featured October Print

Fruit fly sex comb, SEM

Fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) sex comb, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The sex comb is found only on the front legs of males and is one of the most rapidly evolving male-specific traits in Drosophila. They use them to grasp the females' abdomen and genitalia and to spread their wings prior to copulation. Fruit flies are widely used in genetic experiments, particularly in mutation experiments, because they reproduce rapidly and their genetic systems are well understood.
