Abstract

A mutation of wing fragility that was not yet been revealed in adult housefly is described. Criss-cross inheritance of the character of fragility of the wing blade, which indicates localization of gene (fw) for this character in the X chromosome. Phenotypic expression of the mutant allele depends on sex. In male flies, the mutant allele in hemizygous state is expressed at the age of 2–3 weeks and older with penetrance close to 100%. In females, the mutant allele in homozygous state is lethal and in heterozygous state, totally recessive.
