THE polymorphisms exhibited by various lepidopterous insects have been the focus of much research in the field of ecological genetics. However, practically all of this work has involved characters present in the imaginal forms. Recently Jolly et al. (1969) reported that the four larval morphs of Antheraea m,ylitta result from two unlinked loci which exhibit epistasis. Work by Clarke et al. (1963) indicated that the basic larval colour pattern of Papilio demodocus is controlled by a pair of… CONTINUE READING
