Abstract

The platyfish, Platypoecilus maculatus and Platypoecilus variatus, exhibit species-specific black spot patterns, the cells of which consist of macromelanophores. In addition these platyfish exhibit species-specific yellowish or reddish patterns consisting of pterinophores. Both macromelanophores and pterinophores (chromatophores) are determined by sex chromosome-linked loci. Up to now no other sex chromosome-linked markers are known.
