    Heterozygotes show disrupted hygrosensing behaviour; a higher fraction of flies choose moist air (100% humidity) over dry air (0% humidity) compared to wild-type controls in a hygrosensory behaviour assay after five minutes.

    Heterozygosity for this deletion has no effect on the mutant ovarian phenotype of ovoD2.
