The epandrial lobe treatments are precise and organ-specific. Dissected epandria of a control wild-type male (a), a ‘left lobe cut’ male (b) and a ‘left lobe shaved’ male (c). The length of the epandrial lobes was calculated as the distance between the base and the tip of the epandrial lobes (red dots). Abbreviations: ep, epandrium; ll, left epandrial lobe; rl, right epandrial lobe; lsp, left epandrial spine; rsp, right epandrial spine. Scale bar is 200 μm
