  • Examination of the rl hemizygous flies reported in Table 1. Sample sizes for each row (in descending order): 59, 35, 339, and 113. All flies were examined at the same time. Each genotype was directly compared to the other and to their rl+ sibs and to Oregon-R.

  • a Eye size was visually estimated relative to wild type. 1/3 to 1/2 means that eye size varied continuously and uniformly by inspection between 1/3 and 1/2. 1/3 means that eye size was uniformly ~1/3.

  • b Slight, <1/4 of length of vein; significant, between 1/4 and 3/4 of length; entire, >3/4 of vein length; significant to entire, flies vary from significant to entire within the genotype.

  • c Where there is no qualifier as “some” or “most,” all flies of a genotype have the indicated phenotype.

  • d Strongly rolled, extreme wing curvature.
