Malpighian Tubules of Insects

Malpighian tubules and hind gut together constitute the excretory system in insects. These are from two to several hundred in number. Each tubule is similar to a protonephridium in that one end is blind and the other opens into the intestine between the midgut and hindgut of the insects. The tubule as a whole is bathed by haemolymph.
