Seriously, some scallops make a pass for being "argo": they have tiny eyes
all along their mantle's periphery. There is also a "cyclop" arthropod that
has a single "scanner" eye: a single vertical row of ommatidia that it sweeps
left/right. For all kinds of information on eyes, check the work of Mike Land
and T.S. Collett.
