... is similar to the recently reported spectral sensitivity of positive phototaxis of the twilight-swarming E. virgo adults. Negative phototaxis not only facilitates predation evasion: avoidance of the blue-violet spectral range could also promote the larvae to withdraw towards the river midline in the case...
