brown marmorated stink bug head dissected

Microscope view of the head and antennae of a stink bug on a white background. At the base of the head is a tangle of whitish tissue.

In a study of the proteins found in the saliva of stink bugs, researchers carefully separated the head and salivary glands of each stink bug specimen from the thorax, as seen here under a microscope view, to extract the salivary glands for RNA sequencing and analysis.
