      Photo by: courtesy Nicolas Gompel and Benjamin Prud’homme Like butterflies, different species of fruit flies decorate their wings with a great diversity of spots and patterns.

The finding explains how common genes can be controlled to produce the seemingly endless array of patterns, decoration and body architecture found in animals.
