  • SummaryEmbedded in the brain of Armandia brevis are three prostomial ocelli, each composed of two cells. The pigment cell, surrounds a photoreceptor, and forms a pigmented cup and a transparent unpigmented diaphragm. The terminal part of the photoreceptor lies within a receptoral cavity. Its surface is elaborated into folds containing tubular infoldings.The brain of Armandia contains, in addition to ocelli, photoreceptor-like cells partially enclosed by unpigmented epithelioid cells.The… CONTINUE READING
