Some olfactory and gustatory mutants of Drosophila melanogaster are described. The olf mutants are insensitive to the repellent, benzaldehyde or the attractant ethyl acetate or simultaneously to both. The gust mutants are unable to taste quinine or NaCl or sucrose. Electrophysiological tests show that one of the sugar non-tasters has an altered primary chemoreceptor response to sucrose.
