Abstract

Wild type and mutant poliert compound eyes of D. melanogaster studied by means of scanning electron microscopy reveal subunits accompanying normal faceting of the ommatidia. The shape, length, and distribution of hairs over the eye are substantially different in the mutant compared with wild type. However, the fine structure of the ocelli is the same in both flies.
