PALEONEWS:Hundred-eyed bug has trilobyte eyes

very very cool:
A LIVING animal with trilobyte-like eyes discovered.


"The raspberry-like eyes each have 50 lenses, and each lens forms its
own little image of the insect's world, the team at Cornell University
in New York said.

They are so unusual that they were last seen in long-extinct creatures
called trilobites, which lived hundreds of millions of years ago, the
researchers report in the journal Science."
