The proportion of animal food in the form of arthropods (Hymenoptera, Coleoptera, Hemiptera, Myriapoda, Arachnidae), snails and vertebrates (mainly birds, their eggs and chicks) is generally low and, according to most researchers, limited to the spring and early summer, when there is a shortage of appropriate plant food (Ognev 1947, Kahmann 1965, Holisova 1968, Gigirey & Rey 1999, Koppmann-Rumpf et al.

Some debate exists, however, as to whether the relatively large and varied ommatidial units of Xiphosura and Myriapoda are an ancestral trait, from which the more stringently organized insect eyes evolved (Harzsch et al., 2005), or whether they are derived from an ancestor with more precisely regulated ommatidial cell identity (Paulus, 2000), as is known to be the insect-crustacean ancestral state.
