Overview of the current knowledge of the eyes of fossorial lizards in a phylogenetic context. The tree topology and nomenclature are from [42] (several supra-familiar clades were collapsed for simplicity). The percentages of fossorial species were calculated from [2]. Clades with similar proportions of fossorial species are coded in grey scale to ease visualization. To the best of our knowledge, there are no published data on ocular media transmittance and photoreceptor spectral sensitivities for any fossorial lizard. Eyeball cartoon by Laymik from Noun Project
