We present a digital atlas of the glomeruli in the antennal lobe of the honeybee, Apis mellifera, accessible to the scientific community via the Internet. The atlas allows the identification of glomeruli in preparations in which the glomeruli can be recognized, be it in sections or in whole-mounts. The high resolution of the anatomical data upon which the atlas is based and its electronic form should prove to be an important tool for anyone involved in the study of the honeybee antennal lobe. Its accessibility via the Internet is a step towards interactive and freely accessible databases of animal brains.
