Flies heterozygous for each of the male semi-sterile lines and one of the Df lines that affects loco (locoΔ13) were crossed and rare heteroallelic mutant males were collected. Groups of 2–3 males crossed with 3–4 OrR females would normally generate several hundred progeny if the males are also OrR. Each experiment was repeated twice. No adult males were obtained for loco455.
