Heliconius melpomene is a mimetic butterfly that exhibits great geographic variation in color pattern. We present here a genetic linkage map based on analysis of genetic markers in 73 individuals from a single F(2) family, offspring of a cross between H. m. cythera from western Ecuador and H. m. melpomene from French Guiana. A novel "three-step method" is described for the analysis of dominant markers in an F(2) cross, using outbred parental strains and taking advantage of the lack of crossing… CONTINUE READING
