A determination was made of the effect of inversions upon the spontaneous loss of a ring-X chromosome. When the ring-X chromosome is lost, an exceptional XO male is produced. Male Drosophila with a ring shaped X chromosome were mated separately with five types of female flies; of the five types, three differed by lengths of an X chromosomal inversion, one had 3 inversions, and one had no inversions. The results show that spontaneous ring-X loss is proportional to the length of the inverted chromosome material.
