Scales (or macrotrichia) in Lepidoptera are cuticular projections with variable functions, such as impermeability, aid in aerodynamics during flight and visual or chemical sexual communication. The scales responsible to chemical sexual communication are named as "scent organs". Scent organs can be located in many parts of the lepidopterous body, being mostly common on wings. In Brazil, ...
