An arthropod (from Greek ἄρθρον arthron, "joint" and πούς pous, "foot") is an invertebrate animal having an exoskeleton (external skeleton), a segmented body, and paired jointed appendages.
Apposition eyes are the most common form of eye, and are presumably the ancestral form of compound eye.
Biology Letters is a peer-reviewed, biological, scientific journal published by the Royal Society.
Brittle stars or ophiuroids are echinoderms in the class Ophiuroidea closely related to starfish.
The cornea is the transparent front part of the eye that covers the iris, pupil, and anterior chamber.
Crayfish, also known as crawfish, crawdads, crawldads, freshwater lobsters, mountain lobsters, mudbugs or yabbies, are freshwater crustaceans resembling small lobsters, to which they are related; taxonomically, they are members of the superfamilies Astacoidea and Parastacoidea.
Crustaceans (Crustacea) form a large, diverse arthropod taxon which includes such familiar animals as crabs, lobsters, crayfish, shrimp, krill, woodlice, and barnacles.
A dragonfly is an insect belonging to the order Odonata, infraorder Anisoptera (from Greek ἄνισος anisos, "uneven" and πτερόν pteron, "wing", because the hindwing is broader than the forewing).
An electron microscope is a microscope that uses a beam of accelerated electrons as a source of illumination.
Eyes are organs of the visual system.
Image resolution is the detail an image holds.
Insects or Insecta (from Latin insectum) are hexapod invertebrates and the largest group within the arthropod phylum.
The lens is a transparent, biconvex structure in the eye that, along with the cornea, helps to refract light to be focused on the retina.
Lobsters comprise a family (Nephropidae, sometimes also Homaridae) of large marine crustaceans.
Mantises are an order (Mantodea) of insects that contains over 2,400 species in about 430 genera in 15 families.
Mantis shrimps, or stomatopods, are marine crustaceans of the order Stomatopoda.
Mayflies (also known as Canadian soldiers in the United States, and as shadflies or fishflies in Canada and the upper Midwestern U.S.; also up-winged flies in the United Kingdom) are aquatic insects belonging to the order Ephemeroptera.
Micrographia: or Some Phyſiological Deſcriptions of Minute Bodies Made by Magnifying Glasses.
A mirror is an object that reflects light in such a way that, for incident light in some range of wavelengths, the reflected light preserves many or most of the detailed physical characteristics of the original light, called specular reflection.
Mysida is an order of small, shrimp-like crustaceans in the malacostracan superorder Peracarida.
The compound eyes of arthropods like insects, crustaceans and millipedes are composed of units called ommatidia (singular: ommatidium).
Ophiocoma wendtii is a species of brittle stars that inhabits coral reefs from Bermuda to Brazil.
Organs are collections of tissues with similar functions.
A photoreceptor cell is a specialized type of neuroepithelial cell found in the retina that is capable of visual phototransduction.
Polarization (also polarisation) is a property applying to transverse waves that specifies the geometrical orientation of the oscillations.
Prawn is a common name for small aquatic crustaceans with an exoskeleton and ten legs (i.e. a member of the order decapoda), some of which can be eaten.
Scientific Reports is an online open access scientific mega journal published by the Nature Publishing Group, covering all areas of the natural sciences.
Scutigera is a centipede genus in the family Scutigeridae.
The term shrimp is used to refer to some decapod crustaceans, although the exact animals covered can vary.
A simple eye (sometimes called a pigment pit) refers to a type of eye form or optical arrangement that contains a single lens.
The Strepsiptera (translation: "twisted wing"', giving rise to the insects' common name, twisted-wing parasites) are an endopterygote order of insects with nine extant families making up about 600 species.
Temnothorax albipennis, the rock ant is a species of small ant in the subfamily Myrmicinae.
