Dew patches of the A. lilacinus caterpillar. (a, b) external morphology in open (OpDP) and closed (ClDP) configurations of the dew patches; (cl) depth-wise projections showing muscle organization and gut in relation to the dew patches (Rmu retractor muscles, DoLoMu dorsal longitudinal muscles, TrSeMu trans-segmental muscles, Gca gland cavity, Sc external scales); (m, n) original grayscale slice delineating gland positions (marked with yellow lines); (o) a diagram of the dew patches showing closed and open configurations of glands (DPGl: dew patch gland).
