    • Abstract


      Two cases of mosaic (dark-eyed intense—pink-eyed dilute) pelage patterns are reported in the house mouse. The unusual colour was not inherited by descendants. A direct correlation between the mosaic pattern of the coat and the pattern of piebald white-spotting in this strain of mice was observed. Aberrant chromosome division in somatic tissue is suggested as an explanation of these mosaics.
