Abstract
A mutation conferring yellow eye-colour on bees was induced by prolonged application of 6OCo gamma radiation to small colonies of Apis mellifera adansonii. After segregation and allelism tests with other mutants, the new gene was shown to belong to the chartreuse series, and was named chartreuse-Iimao (chli).
