Continuous and regular expansion of a distributed visual system in the eyed chiton Tonicia lebruni

In all living species, the shell valves are covered by a dense array of sensory pores called aesthetes; but in some taxa, a subset of these are elaborated into lensed eyes, which are capable of spatial vision.
