Hi, members,

I have a question on insect mutation. Have you seen an insect with more
than six legs? I remember a case with antennopedia but what if they have
two or three legs at the place where it supposed to have one leg. If it
happens, does anyone know what kind of gene mutation may cause this kind of
problem? Do you think there is a way of finding/confirming it by
sequencing/studying its DNA?

Sincerely,
