Proboscis extension, resulting from adequate taste stimulation of tarsal chemoreceptors was studied in the blowfly. It was found, by means of electromyography of the musculus retractor fulcri, that contraction of this muscle causes the rostrum to be rotated out of the head-capsule. The muscle is a protractor muscle. Earlier work implying that the tracheal system is involved pneumatically in the extension is discussed and reinterpreted.
