  • Nomenclature for offspring genotypes is identical to that of Table 1. For control crosses, which involve intraspecific crosses using D. melanogaster, figures given are the number of pure-species offspring containing the deficiency and lacking the deficiency, respectively. mel, D. melanogaster; mau, D. mauritiana; sec, D. sechellia; sim, D. simulans.

  • a Letters a-i correspond to the respective footnotes in Table 1.
