Although gynandromorphs have been reported previously, they have not been analyzed at this level of detail," Blanche Capel told Science News.
These aberrations and several perfect and near-perfect bilateral gynandromorphs (half dark and half yellow) probably reflect developmental anomalies (Blanchard and Descimon 1988) and intersexes but may also be related to somatic modification of the expression or suppression of dark color (Scriber and Evans 1988a).
