Identifier Name Description
FBbt:00004223 photoreceptor cell R6 Outer photoreceptor cell of the adult eye whose rhabdomere is located at the right angle vertex of the shorter of the two parallel sides of the trapezoid of rhabdomeres in each ommatidium. It has a single axon that projects along a single lamina optic cartridge (Fischbach and Dittrich, 1989; Wolff and Ready, 1993) within which it makes extensive presynaptic connections with the lamina monopolar cells L1-L4 (L4 collaterals from adjacent columns) and lamina intrinsic (amacrine) cells, before terminating in the proximal lamina. It also establishes connections with epithelial and marginal glial cells. The photoreceptor R6 receives input from L4 (L4 collaterals from adjacent columns) and lamina wide-field neurons Lawf (Rivera-Alba et al., 2011).
