Alternatives to superposition images in clear-zone compound eyes
The clear zone between the cones and the receptor layer in dark -adapted eyes of insects that are active in dim light has formerly been explained as a space to allow formation of a superposition image. Although erect images have been seen in Ephestia (Lepidoptera) and Hydrophilus (Coleoptera), new experiments show that they are accompanied by scattered light and that the angular sensitivity of individual receptors must be wide in the dark-adapted state.
