Abstract

The growth and the adaptation to light and to dark of Stomatopoda eyes (Lysiosquillina maculata) are described by optical microscopy. Hydrophilic resin embedding and semi-thin serial sections were used to applay some histochemical techniques, to reveal the large amounts of glycosamineglycan molecules in the specialized corneagenous cells of the cornea. The function of these cells as hydraulic cushion are then speculated.
