Insect eggs show stunning surface structures. Because of the many dangers, insects produce a lot of eggs equipped with thick shells. To guarantee sufficient oxygene diffusion during the development of the embryo caterpillar, butterflies have developped beautiful and heavily ornamented networks of interconnected pores, called the aeropyle system. The aeropyle system of the tropical Zebralongwing butterfly (Heliconius charithonia) possesses a prominently patterned egg surface.
