Abstract

1. Micro-optical and neuro-anatomical techniques were used to study the retinal organisation of the compound eyes and the receptor terminals in the lamina in Bibionidae (Diptera). 2. Male bibionids have divided compound eyes (Fig. 1). The dorsal eyes have larger facets and longer rhabdomeres than the ventral eyes and the eyes of females (Table 1). Groups of… (More)
