A peculiar kind of pigment cell in the compound eye of Lepisma saccharina L. (Thysanura)

Elofsson, Rolf LU (1973) In Entomologica Scandinavica. Supplementum 4. p.87-90
Abstract
The ultrastructure of the primary pigment cells of the compound eye of Lepisma saccharina is described. The cells are four in number. The pigment granules are contained in fingerlike protrusions from the pigment cells. These protrusions project into the enlarged basal lamina surrounding the ommatidial top. The large basal lamina could have given the impression of a cell (called corneagen) in the light microscope.
