Both Uq and Mut are implicated but additional tests are necessary. In the only test cross available (c-m Sh Wx/c sh wx x c sh wx) the progeny segregated as follows:
 
Round
Shrunken
Cl
Spotted
cl
Cl
sp
cl
1
57
11
0
3
68

Such a ratio would suggest either 3-4 elements or autonomous mutability with a high frequency of change to colorless
