Cuticle analysis of wispy over-expression (wispOE). A cuticle of a wild-type larva serving as control. The larval body contains three thoracic (T1-T3) and eight abdominal (A1-A8) segments. The location of the Eve stripes at blastoderm stage are drawn and numbered in red with respect to their later position. Stripe 1 will affect internal structures and is drawn dashed. B embryo from a wispOE cross showing the most-frequent phenotype as fusion of A3-A5. C embryo from a wispOE cross showing the 2nd-most-frequent phenotype as a deletion of A4. D-F less-frequent phenotypes observed in embryos a wispOE cross showing fusion of A4 and A5 (D), deletion of both A4 and A5 (E) and pairwise fusions of A1 and A2 as well as A4 and A5. Segmental fusions are indicated by red arrowheads, segmental deletions by red arrows
