bz-m794226 was previously uncovered from the same population (63 1005/828) as bz-m805137. Mutability at this allele has been shown to be under independent control. In the presence of the appropriate regulatory element the allele conditions a fine-high spotting pattern. In the absence of the regulatory element the phenotype is a stable bronze. No controlling element system has been tested to completion, and as such we will not designate a system.
