These 12 divisions are usually recognizable in the embryo, but the full complement is rarely seen in the postembryonic stages. Only the Protura retain a distinct telson and this order is also peculiar in showing anamorphosis - the newly hatched stage has eight segments and telson, but subsequent stages acquire another three segments which develop from the front of the telson. The Collembola also display an unusual condition; they have only six abdominal segments, both in the embryo and afterwards.

They are important in the Orthoptera, Dictyoptera, Odonata and Coleoptera, but elsewhere they are small and the main propulsive forces are developed by the powerful indirect flight muscles. These are arranged in two functional groups - a dorsal longitudinal set running between the phragmata of meso- and metathorax, and a dorsoventral set running from tergum to sternum. The traditional explanation of the mode of action of these muscles is illustrated in Fig. ( b) (a) (e) (d) Fig. 8 Mechanism of insect flight (a) and (b) illustrate the traditional theory of the mode of action of the indirect flight muscles.
