Palaeontologists have uncovered half-a-billion-year-old fossils demonstrating that primitive animals had excellent vision. An international team led by scientists from the South Australian Museum and the University of Adelaide found the exquisite fossils, which look like squashed eyes from a recently-swatted fly. This exciting discovery has been published in the prestigious journal Nature.

Lead author: Associate Professor Michael Lee, SA Museum and University of Adelaide (School of Earth & Environmental Sciences).
