The virescent known as v*-8587 can be designated v30, as it is uncovered by TB-9La, is not allelic to v1 or ar, and has a map location well away from either of these virescents. Testcross data were obtained for the cross of + + Wc Bf/bk2 v30 + + x bk2 v30 + +.
The order of the factors, bk2 v30 Wc Bf appears to be reliably defined. The numerical data may be subject to some modification after a few retests; in particular, conditions were poor in the field and classification of v30, while generally reliable, was occasionally uncertain and has been assumed for some of the above testcross plants.
