  • n, no. of segments; e, no. of embryos.

  • a Included only muscles in wild-type position.

  • b DT1 (dorsal transverse 1) and LL1 (lateral longitudinal 1) scored as controls due to close proximity to LT4.

  • c VA1/VA2 appear to be present but morphologically abnormal in 92% of hemisegments.

  • d Muscles not scored due to morphological abnormalities.
