Abstract

SPONTANEOUS chromosomal rearrangements are considered to be rare in Drosophila. (Pale and blond are the known cases.) During the past few years I have found two new cases of considerable interest, the detailed analysis of which was delayed by external circumstances. Both cases occurred in pedigree and closely watched cultures, the abnormal broods being among numerous identical normal ones.
