Spectral transmission through the cuticle of the american cockroach, Periplaneta americana

, : Spectral transmission through the cuticle of the american cockroach, Periplaneta americana. Journal of Insect Physiology 23(1): 1-4

Small pieces of cuticle were removed from various regions of the cockroach P. americana, to determine the relative transmittance qualities across the visible and IR regions of the spectrum: wing tip; abdominal tergite and sternite; light and dark pigmented areas of the pronotum; vertex; 2 pairs of wing tips plus underlying tergite. The transmittance across the spectral areas investigated showed significant differences in .mu.W/cm2 between the cuticular areas assayed. A single wing tip possessed high transmittance qualities whereas the vertex and lesser pigmented cuticle showed considerably lower percent transmission.
