Watching limb regeneration in Parhyale hawaiensis.

Alwes et al. amputated a leg (called the T5 limb) in the crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis, and then used a combination of different microscopy techniques to follow its regeneration. This image, taken six days after amputation, shows the regenerated limb encapsulated within the cuticle of the previously amputated limb (red); the image is 655 microns across.
