High-insert: a dominant mutant in the boll weevil with recessive lethal effect

High-insert: a dominant mutant in the boll weevil with recessive lethal effect

Journal of Heredity 70(5): 349-350

An autosomal dominant lethal mutant of Anthonomus grandis Boh., referred to as 'high-insert', is described. This mutation is characterised phenotypically by having the antennal insertion much nearer the eyes than normal. Matings between high-inserts and non-mutants resulted in a 1:1 mutant to non-mutant ratio, and matings in which both partners were mutants yielded a 2:1 mutant to non-mutant ratio.
