They represent a fraction of the many sensilla that have been previously described in other hymenopterans (i.e., trichoid, basiconic, coeloconic, chaetic, ampullacea, campaniform, and placoid) (Hashimoto, 1990; Renthal et al., 2003; Marques-Silva et al., 2006).
The most common among those is the tactile structures which greatly vary in form, including the hair-shaped bristles, chaetica, trichodea, trichobothria, pegs, dome-like, and campaniform sensilla and representing a large group of mechanosensilla.
The sense organs, most probably the campaniform sense organs present at the surface of the pre-apical notch including the two circular rough areas helped the parasitoid wasp in sensing the position of dorsal and ventral stylests or valvulae during the process of locking mechanism.
