E. habitat that varies visually in the scale of patches larger than the size of the animal) will under some conditions be favoured to principally match one patch type (and, by definition, deviate from others) whereas under other conditions to resemble several patch types simultaneously without maximising its match to any single one of them. Thus, the outcome of natural selection for background matching is expected to be either a specialisation to one patch type or compromise between different patch types.

Here the mechanism is one of reduced conspicuousness of the eye (relative to the head) rather than a disruption of eye shape.
