...Kalyanasundaram Parthasarathy; M. A. Willis ABSTRACT The hawkmoth Manduca sexta is nocturnally active, beginning its flight activity at sunset, and executing rapid controlled maneuvers to search for food and mates in dim light conditions. The visual system of this moth has been shown to trade off...

... that the superposition eyes of moths and skippers often deviate severely from the expected ideal case. Part of the deviation has been attributed to diffraction at the single facet lens, which was taken to be an essential limit to spatial resolution, because light traveling through different facet lenses was assumed...

...H. Arthur Woods; Roger T. Bonnecaze; Brandy Zrubek SUMMARY Insect eggs must obtain oxygen across the eggshell to support embryonic development. Because eggs are small, obtaining enough oxygen would seem trivial. Recent work, however, has shown that eggs of a moth, Manduca sexta , are oxygen limited...
