a recessive mutation was found spontaneously in the f11 strain maintained in Kyushu University. It had characteristics of moderately translucent or oily larval skin. Linkage analysis showed that this gene was linked to the bl gene. The novel mutant gene was named translucent-15 (symbol oft). It was localized at position 42.7 centimorgans on the 15th linkage group on the basis of a three-point experiment involving bl and Se as markers.
