The dioptric apparatus of single ommatidia in the compound eye of Calliphora erythrocephala (Meig.) was investigated using physiological and physical methods. 1. The visual fields of single ommatidia were measured by observing pseudopupils in different eye regions. In the centre of the eye the width of the visual field is 7° and at the lateral edge 10°. 2.
