If this is any help, there is a PW8(something) mentioned in
John Merriam's Drosophila clone list. Here are the entries.

clonelist.txt:93B [PW8hsp-sev ch50]hsp,sev 3 0 Science243:931
The first column is cytological map location, the next [PW8...] is gene name
the third ("3") is "transformed inserts", the fourth column ("0") is size in
kilobases, and the last is a reference.
This clonelist is available via anonymous ftp from iubio.bio.indiana.edu,
