Summary

The analysis of triploid intersexes ofSolenobia yields results which do not agree withGoldschmidt's time-law of intersexuality. By crossing two species,Solenobia fumosella × S. triquetrella we finally achieved diploid intersexes.

The sexual mosaic of these diploid intersexes corresponds in each respect to that of the triploids. InF1 a whole scale of intersexes also appeared, thus in corroboration with our earlier results from race-crosses.

Thus it becomes evident that the time-law is not applicable toSolenobia. In a summarizing paper which will soon appear, we shall give a proper interpretation of the phenomenon of intersexuality.
