In September, 1913, a wild female Drosophila of a stock from Liverpool, Nova Scotia, was crossed to a male bearing the second chromosome mutant characters vestigial and speck. A single daughter of this mating was tested, and gave no crossovers among 99 offspring, though vestigial and speck usually show about 37% crossing over. This strain has since been bred in very large numbers, and the experiments are being continued; but it has seemed advisable to report briefly on some of the results obtained.
