Abstract
    The influence of light on the hatching induction of Artemia cysts is well known. Our objective was to determine the absorption characteristics of the responsible photoreceptor by action spectroscopy. The results suggest the involvement of a haemopigment located in the gastrula. Haematin, the haemopigment of the cyst shell is demonstrated to have a light-screening function towards the photoreceptor.
