...P. T. Gonzalez-Bellido; T. J. Wardill; K. C. Buresch; K. M. Ulmer; R. T. Hanlon Squid display impressive changes in body coloration that are afforded by two types of dynamic skin elements: structural iridophores (which produce iridescence) and pigmented chromatophores. Both color elements...

... and structural light reflectors (iridophores and leucophores). Iridophores create colorful and linearly polarized reflective patterns. Equally interesting, the photoreceptors of cephalopod eyes are arranged in a way to give these animals the ability to detect the linear polarization of incoming light...

...Tsyr-Huei Chiou; Lydia M. Mäthger; Roger T. Hanlon; Thomas W. Cronin SUMMARY On every arm of cuttlefish and squid there is a stripe of high-reflectance iridophores that reflects highly polarized light. Since cephalopods possess polarization vision, it has been hypothesized that these polarized...

...Lydia M. Mäthger; Toby F. T. Collins; Pedro A. Lima SUMMARY In this paper we describe changes in spectral reflectivity of the light reflectors (iridophores) of the squid Alloteuthis subulata . The spectral changes that can be seen in living squid, can also be brought about by superfusing whole...

...L. M. Mäthger; M. F. Land; U. E. Siebeck; N. J. Marshall SUMMARY The Paradise whiptail ( Pentapodus paradiseus ) has distinct reflective stripes on its head and body. The reflective stripes contain a dense layer of physiologically active iridophores, which act as multilayer reflectors...

...L. M. Mäthger; E. J. Denton SUMMARY Observations were made of the reflective properties of the iridophore stripes of the squid Alloteuthis subulata and Loligo vulgaris , and the likely functions of these stripes are considered in terms of concealment and signalling. In both species, the mantle...
