Another mutant from Cross 1 (preceding report) was wx-857027. Though a number of En-related wx mutants have appeared in these crosses, wx-857027 does not respond to En. This is verified by its non-mutability and that it does carry En based on a transactive test with an a-m(r) allele that is responsive to En. This wx is not a wx-m(r) allele.
