aesthetasc(s)
See: esthetasc [Martin, 2005].
A long, tubular, sensory seta having thin cuticle, found on the antennula or antenna. Aesthetascs may have a chemosensory function, because males generally have more of these structures than females [Wilson, 1989].
Sensory seta covered by delicate cuticle, often projecting from antenna or antennule. (Syn. olfactory hair, esthetasc, esthete...) [McLaughlin, 1980].
Simple, tubular, thin-walled, chemosensory seta often found on the antennular flagellum [Holdich and Jones, 1983].
Spinelike cuticular processes often occurring in clumps or rows and functioning in chemoreception, usually located on the antennules [Brusca and Brusca, 2002].
(Order Cladocera):
One in a tuft of sensory projections at tip of each antennule. (Syn. esthete, olfactory seta) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Class Cephalocarida):
Elongate sensory projection at tip of each antennule. (Syn. esthete) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Cumacea):
One in a series of sensory projections on main flagellum of antennule [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Tanaidacea):
One in a series of sensory projections on flagella of antennules [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Decapoda):
One in a series of small sensory projections on outer flagellum of antennule. (Syn. esthetasc, esthete, olfactory hair) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Amphipoda):
One in a series of thin-walled sensory projections on antennule. See: calceolus [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Isopoda):
One in a series of sensory projections on antennules. (uniramous, biramous, triramous) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Isopoda):
Thin-walled chemosensory seta usually found on antennular flagellum [Wetzer et al. 1997].
():
Nomenclature of isopod cephalon (A). Examples of isopod mouth appendages: Idoteidae (B, C, F, H); Cirolanidae (D, E, G, I). [Wetzer et al. 1997]
(Order Isopoda):
Thin-walled sensory seta usually on flagellum of antennule [Kensley and Schotte, 1989].
(Order Leptostraca):
One in a series of sensory projections on antennules and ocasionally also on antennae [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Subclass Copepoda):
A thin-walled, sensory element with putative chemoreceptive function, found on the antennules [Boxshall and Halsey, 2004].
(Subclass Copepoda):
A transformed seta of antenna 1 or another oral appendage of copepodids. An aesthetasc usually has a sclerotized base but otherwise is poorly sclerotized; it often is considered to have a chemosensory function [Ferrari and Dahms, in press].
(Subclass Copepoda):
One in a series of small sensory projections along antennule. (Syn. esthetasc, esthete) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Subclass Mystacocarida):
Small sensory projection at tip of each antennule. (Syn. aesthete) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Class Ostracoda):
One in a series of small sensory projections along antennule or antenna; considered to be modified setae [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Class Remipedia):
One of numerous robust, long sensory projections aggregated in several dense rows at base of antennules (on pad on first article of peduncle); directed posteriorly and partially covering antennae. (Syn. esthetasc, esthete, olfactory hair) [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Thermosbaenacea):
One of several senory projections on larger of two flagellaf antennule [Stachowitsch, 1992].
(Order Euphausiacea):
One in a series of small sensory projections on each antennule [Stachowitsch, 1992].
