  • a Represents the 95% confidence support interval about the putative QTL.

  • b Interval from hybrid converted to melanogaster genetic distance using information from Table 1 and the genetic location of the markers in D. melanogaster.

  • c Cytological position inferred from melanogaster genetic position using FlyBase (1999).

  • d All candidate genes were taken from FlyBase (1999), aided by Lindsley and Zimm (1992). Brackets indicate that the genes are very close to, though not within, the support interval. Where the cytological location of the gene is unavailable the genetic position is presented.

  • e Interval significant in reanalysis of comb tooth number data after factoring out tibia length.
