A. versicolor MM loading up **Video**

Caught this male loading his palps. :D

I know the editing is sort of low quality but I'm still just getting used to this video thing.

Also, the vid is in HD for those of you that have that option.

That's a nice video. Technically he's not loading his emboli, but the bulbs themselves. In this case, the embolus is just the long and terminal part of the palpal bulb (nicely visible on the video). The seminal fluid is not stored in the embolus, but in the basal, bulbous part of the organ.

Thanks for the clarification, Zoltan, I was unsure what to call it. I didn't want to say he was loading his palps, b/c well, that just didn't sound right. :)
