In the report "Complementation at the maroon-like eye-color locus of Drosophila melanogaster" by E. Glassman and W. Pinkerton [Science 131, 1810 (1960)], the genetic designations of the stocks used in the work (given near the top of column 1, page 1811) were made unclear by our insertion of explanations for the symbols v and f in the designation. The sentence should have read "The stocks used were v f Bx3 ma-l, which was made from the ma-l strain at California Institute of Technology, and v ma-lbx, which was made from the bronzy stock kindly made available by Fahmy." (v, vermilion eye color; f, forked bristle; Bx3, Beadex wing; ma-l, maroon-like eye color; ma-lbs, bronzy allele of maroon-like eye color)
