Abstract

The rice grasshopper, Oxya yezoensis, shows a three color polymorphism: red, green and brown. To examine the factors regulating adult color polymorphism, crosses between the three color morphs were carried out. It was shown that color polymorphism in Oxya yezoensis is partly controlled by genetic factors.
