... with reflecting superposition optics. These eyes view the world through an orbital hood that is 80–90% as transparent as seawater across visible wavelengths (400–700 nm). Through electroretinography and microspectrophotometry, we found the eyes of A. heterochaelis have a temporal sampling rate of >40 Hz...

... that all show minimal UV reflectance. Here, we determine the cone photoreceptor spectral sensitivities and opsin expression of the two lineages, to test whether they differ, particularly in the UV wavelengths. Using microspectrophotometry on retinal cone photoreceptors, we identified a long-wavelength...

... it an ideal candidate for intraspecific differences in spectral sensitivity. Here, the visual pigments of P. elegans were fully characterised through molecular sequencing of five visual opsin genes and measurement of their absorbance spectra using microspectrophotometry. Three of the genes, LWS , SW1 and SWS2...

Using microspectrophotometry, we show that the retinae of the giant shovelnose ray ( Rhinobatos typus ) and the eastern shovelnose ray ( Aptychotrema rostrata ) contain three spectrally distinct cone visual pigments with wavelengths of maximum absorbance(λ max ) at 477, 502...
