Flying insects require mechanosensory feedback to rapidly generate compensatory responses to unexpected perturbations. Such feedback is critical in insects such as moths, which fly under low light levels, compromising their ability to visually compensate for aerial perturbations. Here, we describe how diverse mechanosensory organs have adapted to provide vestibular feedback in various insects, with particular focus on hawkmoths.
