Egg shell of a moth species (Idaea humiliata). The egg was extracted from the ovarial tract of female museum specimen. At the center is a minute opening called the micropyle, through which the sperm enters and fertilizes the egg. With kind support of Marius Junker (University Trier) and Axel Hausmann (ZSM).
