Abstract / Bemerkung
The ventral coxal hairplate (cxHPv) of the stick insect Carausius morosus Br. (Phasmida: Bacteriidae) contains two morphologicaly distinct groups of sensilla designated as group 1 and 2 (G1, G2). The function of these sensilla during walking was tested by selectively ablating one or both groups on one middle leg in thirty-four animals. It has previously been shown that ablation of the entire hairplate leads to two kinds of errors: the operated leg swings farther forward and the adjacent caudal leg ends its swing more to the rear relative to the operated leg. Following selective ablation of cxHPv G1 on the middle leg, the first kind of error is more pronounced, indicating that this group contributes more to limiting forward protraction during the swing. Following ablation of cxHPv G2, the second kind of error is more evident, indicating that during stance this group contributes more to the target information influencing the swing end-point of the adjacent caudal leg. These results are interpreted to reflect the phasic and phasic-tonic response characteristics of G1 and G2 hairs, respectively.
