1. Four spectral types of photoreceptors have been characterized by double electrode recordings, with one electrode inside the cell and the other immediately outside. The colour types are: UV — peak sensitivity at 390 nm, blue — 450 nm, green — 540 nm and red — 610 nm. Recordings from the red receptors presented here are the first complete electrophysiological confirmations of the microspectrophotometrically measured red receptors in the retina of butterflies (Bernard 1979). 2.
