  1. Summary of the average number of each sensilla type on the female antenna for each species. mean – average number of sensilla per antenna; se – standard error of the mean (+/-); dist – distribution of sensilla type by flagellomere number; n – individuals per species; m – survey method (b – brightfield, s – SEM); sum – sum of sensilla averages; p– significance level in two-tailed t-test comparing mean sensilla numbers.
