Media notes
Fig. 6: 3D reconstructions (based on in copula positions, but rotated into repose positions) and a DSLR image of male internal genitalia and greater reproductive system components of Melanoplus rotundipennis (posterior to right unless otherwise noted with one exception - spermatophore only present during copulation, so this component always points anteriorly): A. all components, quasi-dorsal view; B. epiphallus, dorsal view, posterior downwards; C. epiphallus, left lateral view; D. ectophallus, dorsal view; E. ectophallus, left lateral view; F. endophallus, dorsal view; G. endophallus, left lateral view; H. DSLR, discarded spermatophore, left lateral view; I. greater reproductive system, left lateral view; J. greater reproductive system, dorsal view.
