Colour perception of spectral lights and mixtures of two monochromatic lights of blue and yellow wavelengths was studied in the blowfly Lucilia cuprina by using a generalization test in which the fly had to compare these lights in memory with coloured papers (blue, green, yellow and red) represented in the test array. Flies trained to a monochromatic light in the wavelength range of 429–491 nm responded to blue; those trained to 502–511 nm to green; and those trained to 522–582 nm to yellow… CONTINUE READING
