Dear Knowledgeable Maize Researchers,

I appear to have a new (to me) mutation that confers both an orange
endosperm and a dark orange to red embryo. This appears to be
segregating 3:1 and I do not think it is orp1 and orp2. Some of the
embroyos may be slightly viviparous. Any ideas? In the maize database
there are references to orange endosperm mutations but there are no
stocks available for allelism crosses, etc.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.
