The rostrum tip of Dysdercus spp. bears on each side 13 sensilla. They include 10 sensilla basiconica, innervated by 3-5 neurons, one small sensillum basiconicum (innervated by two dendrites), one sensillum basiconicum with a sharp tip (innervated by three neurons) and one sensillum trichodeum (innervated by two neurons). The microstructure of the sensilla basconica indicates a contact chemoreceptive function; this conclusion is supported by preliminary electrophysiological evidence.
