Tactile organs of the A. lilacinus caterpillar. (a, b) External morphology; (cf) depth-wise projections showing internal organization of muscles (SpMu sphincter muscle), nerve fibres, and gut, in relation to the tactile organ chambers (marked with yellow dashed lines); (g) original grayscale slice delineating tactile organs; (h) a diagram showing open and closed configurations of tactile organs along with relative positions of gut, sphincter muscle, and the last abdominal ganglion.
