The results of this study showed new insights into the architecture of the scorpions pectine neuropil and the somatotopic innervation pattern by afferent neurons of differently located pegs. Moreover, these results were compared and discussed with previous studies, which showed a more comprising view of the chemo- and mechanosensory processing strategy in scorpions. There are some similarities between the primary chemosensory neuropils in mandibulates (Sombke, Rosenberg and Hilken, 2011; Loesel, 2013) and the scorpion pectines (Wolf, 2008, 2017; Wolf and Harzsch, 2012).
