Extra Y chromosome, as with other variegated browns, suppresses brown color, giving red eye sparsely speckled or splotched with darker spots. Amount of wild-type eye color also responds to fourth-chromosome constitution; 4/C(4) > C(4) = 4/4 > 4/0, with the first approaching wild type and the latter nearly bw (Lindsley and Rokop). Generally lethal homozygous and in combination with other brown-Variegateds. Heterozygotes fully viable and fertile.
