Fig. 7

Three-dimensional reconstructions of the brains of one female and one male based on histological sections. Neuropils of the protocerebrum (reddish: visual neuropils, blue: hemiellipsoid body/terminal medulla complex, purple: central body), deutocerebrum (yellowish) and tritocerebrum (green) as well as the projection neuron tract (grey) are shown. In the right hemispheres of both brains, all somata are depicted. Interactive 3D PDFs are available as supplements (see Additional files 5 and 6). Abbreviations: ann antenna 2 neuropil, cb central body, dcl deutocerebral chemosensory lobe, ec esophageal connective, hn/tm hemiellipsoid body terminal medulla complex, la lamina, lan lateral antenna 1 neuropil, lo lobula, me medulla, pnt projection neuron tract, vnc ventral nerve cord. Scale bars: 100 μm
