    Dear @Guju,

    Beautiful post.

    Those projections look like legs – and not gills (which are also respiratory organs for some insects). Mayflies and damselflies do happen to have little gills- but from what I can see / this seems to be little folded legs.

    Here is a nice review of a bizzare number of insect breadthing behavior – insects did invent “snorkeling” and “under water diving”

    Beautiful post. Keep exploring!

    Cheers

    Ps: I noticed you are not using your magnetic coupler to connect your phone to a foldscope. Here is a simple video tutorial for the same – it will take making videos and images very simple!

      Thanks for reply
      The part you are telling is actually out of the body
      I am talking about the organs inside the body
      I ll edit and high light those lungs of which I m talking about

      They are actually in center of the image

      My tablet has camera outwards
      And the coupler could be stocked with tape but I was out of tape and circle sticker
