Data from: Exploring the visual world of fossilized and modern fungus gnat eyes (Diptera: Keroplatidae) with X-ray microtomography

Gavin Taylor, Stephen Hall, Johan Gren & Emily Baird
Animal eyes typically possess specialised regions for guiding different behavioural tasks within their specific visual habitat. These specializations, and evolutionary changes to them, can be crucial for understanding an animal’s ecology. Here, we explore how the visual systems of some of the smallest flying insects, fungus gnats, have adapted to different types of forest habitat over time (~30 mya to today). Unravelling how behavioural, environmental and phylogenetic factors influence the evolution of visual specialisations is...
