phenotype: Like shf2 but more extreme (shf2: Veins closer together than in wild type. L3 and L4 tend to fuse near anterior crossvein; anterior crossvein shortened, knotted, or absent. Phenotypic effect visible in prepupal wing bud, the two longitudinal veins diverging at a smaller than normal angle [Waddington, 1940, J. Genet. 41: 75-139 (fig.)]. Eyes sometimes slightly rough. Scutellar bristles often absent. Scutellum short. Wings narrow and often warped downward. Fertility and viability good. RK2). Viability about 70 percent wild type. Frequently infertile. RK2.
