Larval vision paper in press Nature Comm; this paper presents evidence that larvae can 'see' other larvae.

Check out this video; it shows a larva circling under tethered target larvae. However, the target larvae are on the other side of the petri dish plastic indicating that vision is the primary means of detection.
