An organule is a small organ in an arthropod integument that develops from a single epidermal cell dividing twice to form four cells which consist of:
- a bristle or canal producing cell.
- a socket producing cell.
- a gland cell or a sensory neuron cell.
- an accessory cell sometimes called a Schwann cell or potentially a stem cell for further elaboration of the organule.
