  • Stomatopod adult and larval retinas develop within the same eyestalk before the final metamorphosis, the post-larval molt, into stomatopodid. This post-larval molt leads to an astounding ocular adjustment with the larval retina reducing in size and the adult retina growing. The two organisms studied here are Pullosquilla litoralis and Pullosquilla thomassini, two sympatric species within the same genus. Thirty-nine individuals were captured in their terminal larval stage and photographed for a… CONTINUE READING
