nauplius eye A single median eye comprising three- or four-pigment cup ocelli, sometimes with a lens, probably enabling the organism to determine the direction of a source of light for orientation. The median eye is typical of crustacean nauplius larvae. It may degenerate as the larva develops, or it may persist into the adult form.
