Two mutations are described. One of them is characterized by a deformation of the eye region: shortening or disappearance of some ommatidia, disruption of the integrity of basal membrane and eye capsule, replacement of the eye tissues for the fat body cells and partial destruction of the ganglion optic lobes. The 2nd mutation is characterized by an unusally small head, full or partial reduction of eyes, as well as gross defects in the structure of all parts of the ganglion optical lobes and their abnormal position.
