False-colour SEM of a human head louse

False-colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a human head louse, Pediculus humanus capitis, clinging to a human hair. The head louse inhabits the hair of the head, glueing its eggs (called nits) to the shafts of individual hairs. The head louse is closely related to the body louse Pediculus humanus corporis; both subspecies are capable of interbreeding. Their main difference is in habitat, with body lice living in clothing, moving on to the skin to feed. Magnification: x22 at 6x4.5cm size

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a false-colour scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a human head louse, scientifically known as Pediculus humanus capitis. In this intricate image, the tiny parasite can be seen clinging to a single strand of human hair. The head louse is notorious for making its home in the hair on our heads and attaching its eggs, commonly referred to as nits, to individual hair shafts. Interestingly, the head louse shares close kinship with another subspecies called Pediculus humanus corporis or body lice. Despite their ability to interbreed, these two subspecies differ primarily in habitat preference. While head lice inhabit our hair and feed directly from our scalps, body lice reside in clothing and only move onto the skin when it's time for them to feed. At an impressive magnification of x22 and measuring 6x4.5cm in size, this SEM image offers us an extraordinary glimpse into the world of these minuscule creatures. It serves as a reminder that even within our own bodies exists an entire ecosystem teeming with diverse life forms. This remarkable photograph captures not just the beauty but also the scientific significance of these insects within fields such as zoology and entomology. With its vibrant false colours highlighting crucial details, this print from Science Photo Library truly brings nature's wonders up close and personal for all to admire.
