Abstract

Lysiosquillina maculata and L. sulcata have an exceptional mechanism, never observed in any other eye, for adaptation to the extreme light condition in their habitat. Hydrophylic resina embedding was applied to these decapoda eyes to resolve the complex architecture of their ommatidia. The results suggest the presence of a particolar tissue never before described.
