Morpha

Morpha

 

a type (phenotype) within a species or within a certain population of a species that is morphologically sharply differentiated (discrete). Examples of morphae are various albino and melanistic vertebrates, the red form of the gray Ural owl (Strix uralensis), and redheaded individuals in the Caucasian race of man. Species and populations that have morphae are called polymorphic. Sometimes the seasonal (autumnal, spring) forms of certain insects and the lake and river forms of certain fishes are called morphae.
