ABSTRACT A male albino crayfish that lacked melanin and red pigments except in its compound eyes was captured. It also lacked a blue median line that is found on the abdomen in normal crayfish. Its compound eyes were black, as in normal crayfish. The albino crayfish was mated with a normal crayfish. The inherited characteristics of the first filial generation (F,) were the same as those of normal crayfish. One quarter of the second filial generation (F,) were albinos and the others had normal characteristics. Based on the phenotypes of F, and F2, the albino trait is recessive to normal pigmentation in crayfish and is controlled by Mendelian laws.
