Abstract:Genetic crossing experiments of the apricot eye (ap) mutant, discovered in a recently introduced laboratory colony of Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel), demonstrated that it was inherited as an autosomal recessive gene. Mating preference tests showed that both apricot eye females and wild-type females preferred to male with males of their own strains. However, only wild-type males were highly successful in mating with both types of females.
