Morphological description:   Bilateral V-relay interneuron (bVI) is an asymmetric relay interneuron of which branches profusely in both left and right glomeruli V. They are connected to each other via the SOG (suboesophageal ganglion) by a stout process. Slightly lateral to the midline, this process sends off a single asymmetric branch that extends into the lateral SOG, most likely towards the cell body. Furthermore, some distance behind each antennal lobe, two mirror-symmetric side branches arise from the stout process that connects the two lobes. These side branches extend straight into the ventro-lateral deutocerebrum; their final destination is not clear.
