Escaping compound eye ancestry: the evolution of single-chamber eyes in holometabolous larvae.

Abstract

Stemmata, the eyes of holometabolous insect larvae, have gained little attention, even though they exhibit remarkably different optical solutions, ranging from compound eyes with upright images, to sophisticated single-chamber eyes with inverted images. Such optical differences raise the question of how major transitions may have occurred. Stemmata evolved… (More)
