Odontodactylus latirostris eye

A very close up view of the eye of O. latirostris from Lizard Island, Australia. This photo nicely shows the three pseudopupils, formed by the dorsal periphery, ventral periphery and the midband. In this photo, the mantis shrimp is looking at the camera with its 'acute zone', a region of the compound eye with increased spatial resolution.
