caterpillar of the moth, Trabala vishnou Lefebur, has 6 stemmata on each side of its head. The diameter of the lens of each stemma varies. However, the basic structure of a stemma is similar to an ommatidium of a compound eye. Each stemma has a corneal lens, corneagenous cells, a crystalline cone, and retinular cells. The 7 retinular cells in each stemma are organized in 2 tiers, distal and proximal. Stemmata II and V both have 4 distal and 3 proximal retinular cells, while the other stemmata… Expand

Spectral sensitivity of the principal eyes of sunburst diving beetle, Thermonectus marmoratus (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae), larvae
SUMMARY The principal eyes of sunburst diving beetle, Thermonectus marmoratus, larvae are among the most unusual eyes in the animal kingdom. They are composed of long tubes connecting bifocal lensesExpand
Scanning behavior by larvae of the predacious diving beetle, Thermonectus marmoratus (Coleoptera: Dytiscidae) enlarges visual field prior to prey capture
TLDR
It is reported here that T. marmoratus larvae are incapable of moving their eyes or any part of their eyes within the head capsule, but they do perform a series of bodily dorso-ventral pivots prior to prey capture, behaviorally extending the vertical visual field from 2° to up to 50°. Expand
Spatial orientation of social caterpillars is influenced by polarized light
TLDR
Behavioural and anatomical evidence reveal that polarized light cues are important for larval orientation and can be robustly detected with a simple visual system. Expand
See the light: electrophysiological characterization of the Bolwig organ's light response of Calliphora vicina 3rd instar larvae.
TLDR
Recording extracellulary from the Bolwig nerve of 3rd instar Calliphora vicina larvae to quantify the sensory response caused by BO stimulation with light stimuli of different wavelengths, intensities and directions found the BO most sensitive to white and green, followed by blue, yellow, violet and red light.

Rojas : Estigmene acrea Response to Light 505 BEHAVIORAL RESPONSES OF LARVAE AND ADULTS OF ESTIGMENE ACREA ( LEPIDOPTERA : ARCTIIDAE ) TO LIGHT OF DIFFERENT WAVELENGTHS
We investigated the behavioral responses of neonate and mature (6th instar) larvae, and mated females of Estigmene acrea (Drury) (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae) to a range of wavelengths under laboratoryExpand
Structure, mechanism and mechanical properties of pupal attachment in Greta oto (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Ithomiinae)
TLDR
The attachment was found to have high tensile strength and fracture toughness, both of which suggest that it has evolved for the dual purpose of preventing the pupa being pulled from the leaf by a predator and preventing the attachment being weakened by wind, which causes the pupA to swing. Expand
Behavioral Responses of Larvae and Adults of Estigmene acrea (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae) to Light of Different Wavelengths
TLDR
Investigation of the behavioral responses of neonate and mature (6th instar) larvae, and mated females of Estigmene acrea (Drury) to a range of wavelengths under laboratory conditions found that females may use ultraviolet and blue lights as orientation cues during the searching behavior for oviposition sites. Expand
Extraocular photoreception and colour plasticity in caterpillars of the peppered moth, Biston betularia
TLDR
Strong evidence is provided for a novel physiological phenomenon: extraocular colour photoreception in the dermis of an insect, used to mediate colour change and behavioural background choice in the Lepidoptera. Expand
Behavioral responses in feeding to green color as visual stimulus with two lepidopteran larvae, Spodoptera litura (Fabricius) (Noctuidae) and Milionia basalis pryeri Druce (Geometridae)
TLDR
Novel findings that indicate lepidopteran larvae recognize the green colors of their host plants are found and reveal that the larval response to the color of chlorophyll b is orthokinetic rather than tactic. Expand
Attraction of larvae of the armyworm Spodoptera litura (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) to coloured surfaces
TLDR
It is shown that green and yellow can be used as visual attractants in Spodoptera litura larval traps. Expand

Termination profiles of photoreceptor cells in the larval eye of the swallowtail butterfly
TLDR
The terminals of photoreceptors correspond to their photoreceptive properties and provide further evidence for the functional specialization of the photoreception of the butterflyPapilio xuthus. Expand
Fine structure of the compound eye of Mallada basalis (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)
TLDR
The morphology of the compound eye of the lacewing Mallada basalis (Walker) was investigated by scanning and transmission electron microscopy and shows the fused-type rhabdom that is of great advantage to spectral sensitivity. Expand
Identification of photoreceptor locations in the compound eye of Coccinella septempunctata Linnaeus (Coleoptera, Coccinellidae)
TLDR
Three spectral types of photoreceptor with sensitivity maxima in the 360 nm (u.v. light), 420 nm (blue light) and 520 nm (green light) were characterized in the compound eye of Coccinella septempunctata Linnaeus by intracellular electro-physiological recording and it was concluded that all six peripheral retinula cells were green receptors.

Distribution of color receptors in the larval eyes of four species of lepidoptera
TLDR
The spectral sensitivities of all photoreceptor cells in Mamestra except for one, R4 of stemma IV, are the same as those of the anatomically equivalent cells in Papilio xuthus, and the fact that the R4s ofstemma IV inMamestra andPapilio differ from each other physiologically may be related to the phylogenetic distance between the two species.

Cellular patterns and spectral sensitivity of larval ocelli in the swallowtail butterflyPapilio
TLDR
Caterpillars of the swallowtail butterfly like most lepidopterans have six larval ocelli (stemmata) on each side of the head but the cellular patterns and spectral sensitivities fall into three classes, as proved by intracellular recordings. Expand
Ocellar system of the swallowtail butterfly larva. II. Projection of retinular axons in the brain.
TLDR
The retinular axons from the lateral ocelli have been examined in the brain of the larva of the swallowtail butterfly, Papilio xuthus and in comparison with the optic neuropils of the insect compound eye. Expand
Ocellar system of the swallowtail butterfly larva. I. Structure of the lateral ocelli.
TLDR
The structure of the lateral ocelli in the larva of the swallowtail butterfly, Papilio xuthus, has been examined and results suggest that the distal cells may be highly sensitive, whereas the proximal cells in the frontal o celli, and the central cell in the posterior ocella with a narrow acceptance angle may be less sensitive. Expand
Functional diversity of neural organization in insect ocellar systems
TLDR
It is proposed that the "cockroach type" ocellar system can be characterized as a sensitive type where higher sensitivity is attained because of the higher ratio of convergence of photoreceptor signals onto second-order neurons. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that the silkworm possesses colour vision and responds differently to green‐red lights (≥ 513 nm) from UV‐blue Lights (≲ 482 nm), which is different from that of other monochromatic lights. Expand

TLDR
Differences suggested that the characteristics of histamine receptors of l -neurons are different from those in vertebrates, and one of them is very likely to be a novel histamine receptor. Expand
