Abstract

The proper perception of celestial orienting factors is fundamental for the zonal recovery of the supralittoral amphipod Talitrus saltator (Crustacea, Amphipoda). Here, we test the existence of the regionalization of its visual capabilities within its compound eye. Indeed, we show that the dorsal area plays a main role in the detection of skylight cues and we point out putative morphological adaptions of the ommatidia located in this region.
