Frontal view of beetle head. The antennae have been removed. The compound eyes are lateral. The beetle belong to the species Paussus favieri (Coleoptera, Carabidae, Paussini), a myrmecophilous ground beetle parasitic on ants. The picture is particularly dramatic since the antennal holes look like eyes of a monster.

The iSP cells were grown on Matrigel ® by Dr. Koei Chin (OHSU). These cells present tumorigenic phenotype by expressing constitutively active form of Her2 oncogene. They were provided by Dr. William Muller (McGill University, Montreal, Quebec). The SEM image was recorded on a FEI Helios 660 Nanolab™ using BSE mode (Magnification: 8000x). Each cell in the image shows a variety of protrusions: lamellipodia and filopodia.
