Three crosses of +/nl x TB-10Lb segregated narrow leaf seedlings in the sandbench, while +/nl x TB-10Sc (one cross) gave normal seedlings only, so it appears that nl is located on 10L rather than on 10S as previously believed (Beckett, MNL 49:131-134). Progenies were small, so confirmation is needed.
