KeywordsLenticuli clear spots vision Oribatids
Lenticuli of Hydrozetes lemnae and Scutovertex sculptus, together with clear spots of Oribatella quadricornuta and Chamobates voigtsi, owing to their ultrastructural properties, represent photosensitive organs. Lenticuli clearly have a more complicated structure. Both structures proceed from secondary origin.
