Last summer I received some whites and some darks to start my stock 
from.  Last Fall, I received three albinos.  So this spring I mated a 
white male with an albino female.  SUCCESS!!!  The eggs were white, 
as expected.  The early larvae were white, as expected.  Now that the 
larvae are an inch plus long, about 1/4 of the offspring are DARK.  
Will someone please explain that to me.  I thought both traits were 
recessive.  I was not looking for a white albino, but the dark larvae 
kind of throw me.

Thanks for the explanation.
