We report on the first attempts, using both light and fluorescence microscopy, to visualize the developing embryo of the butterfly Bicyclus anynana. We developed a new protocol that enabled the clear visualization of the internal egg structures in early embryogenesis (1-24 h after egg laying). Dechorionation was followed by fixation and physical dissection of the external egg structures. Observations of embryonic and extra-embryonic cells were made using a Hoechst nuclear stain that fluoresces in the blue spectrum when bound to DNA and excited with ultraviolet (UV) light under a fluorescence microscope. Preliminary data on the developmental rate of the early embryo are also presented.
