Comments P.163 3rd paragraph: "Table 1 gives a list of reliable measurements of interommatidial angle in insects classified by order and by eye type. Unless otherwise indicated, these are minimum values from the front part of the eye. Where vertical and horizontal angles differ, as they often do, the compromise angle[ΔΦh^2 + ΔΦv^2)^(1/2): Figure 2b] is used. Other things being equal, one would expect acuity to be close to 1/(2Δφ)." See abbreviations and note beneath table
