Temperature-dependent gonadal dysgenesis was shown to occur in the progeny of both inter- and intrastrain crosses involving two populations of Drosophila willistoni, one of which was an old laboratory stock, and the other, freshly collected from a natural population. We propose that the phenomenon observed was caused by the mobilization of transposable elements, as occurs in several other Drosophila species.
