Compound eyes; lenses; eye parameter; Anomalocaris; Emu Bay Shale; Australia; Cambrian
Recent discoveries from the early Cambrian (Stage 4) Emu Bay Shale (Kangaroo Island) of South Australia reveal arthropod compound eye details of unique quality and complexity for their age (~515Ma). The findings include seven specimens of isolated visual surfaces of an unknown, non-biomineralized arthropod, and two specimens identified as the eyes of Anomalocaris..
