Abstract

There was a strong genetic component to morph determination, but results were inconsistent with a single-locus, two-allele mode of inheritance. Photoperiod strongly influenced morph determination, with a higher proportion of long-winged morphs being produced in the short-decreasing photoperiod treatment. A photoperiod-dependent morph X sex association was also observed.-from Authors
