Movies S1 to S3

Movie s1
starts with a scroll through a stack of virtual holotomographic transversal (or cross) sections through a male Harbinia micropapillosa specimen. After second 4, a whole-datareconstruction in grey-scale is forming from the holotomographies, showing a semitransparent virtual image of the fossil. As from second 7, it is replaced by the Amira®- processed data, showing central tubes of Zenker organs in orange, oesophagus in brown, mandible in turquoise, upper lip in purple, lower lip in pink and the animal's valves in green. (.mpg, 8.27 MB, 10 seconds, specimen OS 15521, body length 967 μm)

Movie s2
starts with a scroll through a stack of virtual holotomographic frontal sections through a female Harbinia micropapillosa specimen. After a complete scroll from dorsal to ventral, it scrolls half way back dorsally into a median position, where the seminal receptacles and the oesophagus are cut (second 5). These are briefly highlighted by adding their Amira®- processed data in brown (oesophagus) and orange (seminal receptacles). (.mpg, 3.52 MB, 7 seconds, specimen OS 15534, body length 975 μm)

Movie s3
starts with a scroll through a stack of virtual holotomographic sections (obliquely sagittal) through a female Harbinia micropapillosa specimen. After second 5, a whole-datareconstruction in grey-scale is forming from the holotomographies, showing a semitransparent virtual image of the fossil. As from second 8, it is replaced by the Amira®- processed data, showing seminal receptacles in orange, oesophagus in brown, mandible in turquoise, upper lip in purple, lower lip in pink and the animal's valves in green. (.mpg, 6.95 MB, 10 seconds, specimen OS 15534, body length 975 μm)
