Responses to continuous spectral scans in the ultraviolet (uv) have been measured intracellularly from the central retinula cells R7 and R8 in the fly (Musca, female). The spectral sensitivities thus obtained have a resolution limited by the bandwidth of the light supplied by the mono-chromator (0.3–1.5 nm). One class of R7 cells, classified as 7y (Kirschfeld et al. 1978) shows three conspicuous peaks of sensitivity at 337, 355 and 373 nm (Fig. 3a). The underlying R8 cells (8y) also show three… CONTINUE READING
