In order to improve our understanding of visual behavior and its mechanism in M. alternatus, the compound eye external morphology and fine structures were observed with a scanning electron microscope (SEM), a transmission electron microscope (TEM) and light microscopy (LM). This descriptive work and mapping provides a basis for future investigation of M. alternatus behavior.
