spalt expression in Bicyclus anynana larval and pupal wings. (A) sal is expressed in the future eyespot centers (arrowheads), in the late 5th instar larval hindwing discs (50×); (B) sal expression extends to the scale-building cells in a larger circular pattern around the densely packed cells of the eyespot focus, at 19 h after pupation (arrowheads point to focus and to scale-building cells) (200×).
