Cover legend

Germ band of the amphipod crustacean Gammarus pulex stained with anti Distal-less antibody (fluorophor-conjugate d) and the fluorescent nuclear dye Bisbenzimid. Distal-less is expressed during for mation and growth of appendage buds including the mandibles. It is already present before appendage buds are visible morphologically as seen in posterior regions of the germ band. Photograph: Matthias Gerberding. For details see "The pattern of Distal-less expres sion in the mouthparts of crustaceans, myriapods and insects: new evidence for a gnathobas ic mandible and the common origin of Mandibulata" by Gerhard Scholtz et al. in this issue.
