Les9, which was reported to be on chromosome 7 by linkage with wxT7c-9(4363) (MNL 58:83) was testcrossed with an o2 v5 ra1 gl1 stock. Les9 was originally designated Les*-F331035142. It was subsequently given the lab symbol Les*-2008, and the gene symbol proposed in this issue. Scoring of the progeny last summer indicates that Les9 is linked to ra1. With the low number of progeny scored, it is not possible to determine the exact placement of Les9 with respect to ra1. Additional progeny will be scored next summer. All paired recombination values were calculated by the maximum likelihood method.
