Student Author(s): Kosin, Dorothea F.

Keywords: black turban snail
Tegula
Abstract: Tegula funebralis is negatively phototactic. It becomes adapted to bright light, and loses its sensitivity temporarily. It has a general body sensitivity shown by a shadow reaction. Its eyes, simple lens ocelli, seem responsible for directional orientation to light. Without eyes its orientation is irregular.
