  • SummaryThe lateral eyes of Baetis vernus are structured similarly in both sexes. They are eucone apposition eyes with a closed rhabdom formed by eight retinula cells. The accessory pigment cells surround the ommatidia over their entire length. The morphological adaptation to different illuminations consists of a radial displacement of mitochondria and endoplasmic vacuoles. The dorsal eyes of the male Baetis, often called turban eyes, differ remarkably in structure and size from the lateral… CONTINUE READING
