Neurosecretory cells were histochemically identified in the thoracic ganglia of the Colorado potato beetle and Drosophila melanogaster with an antiserum to the molluscan cardioexcitatory neuropeptide FMRFamide (Phe-Met-Arg-Phe-NH2). These cells and the FMRFamide-immunoreactive neurosecretory cells identified in a locust are most likely homologous. The neurosecretory axon terminals in the 3 species use different neurohaemal organs. Such a structural diversity in release sites of apparently homologous neurosecretory cells in different species may account for the large structural variability in neurohaemal organs in insects in general.
