    In combination with other aberrations

    Df(1)KA6/Df(1)m259-4 heterozygotes are viable.

    Heterozygotes with Df(1)KA6 survive and have an extreme m phenotype with flimsy wings.

    Df(1)m259-4/Df(1)KA6 viable (Craymer and Roy, 1980). Df(1)m259-4/Df(1)KA6 extreme m phenotype (Craymer and Roy, 1980)

    NOT in combination with other aberrations

    hemizygous late embryonic lethal

    Dominantly causes tergite defects in less than 50% of run3 heterozygotes.

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

    male lethal. Heterozygote with m has m phenotype. Heterozygote with dy is wild type. Recombines with m59, m,
