SummaryPhotoreceptors of flies contain pigment granules which upon illumination of the receptors migrate towards the rhabdomere and act as a ‘longitudinal pupil’. Data in the literature concerning the effect of the pupil on the spectral sensitivity are contradictory. Therefore spectral sensitivity ofMusca photoreceptors upon light adaptation was reinvestigated.The change in spectral sensitivity of fly photoreceptors upon light adaptation as measured by Hardie (1979) was confirmed.
