if this has been said I apologise...
I'm aware that there are different cell layers for different
pigments/patterns, although I'm not well versed. Pictures of BC's
like the Chimera Alpha Gnu and my own observations of BC patterning
suggest that these layers may be signifigant beyond which pigment.
I wonder if we shouldn't think of BC as a pattern that is overlaid on
top of plicata. Or maybe under... or maybe some combination of the
two. I think someone mentioned glaciata or some other function
that "clears" the ground. It's a fuzzy idea I know.
I think of the cell layers as seperate layers of acetate on some
anatomy charts I've seen, which I've said before. I buy the bit
about codons at play in the pigments, but maybe the "ground" on a
typical plicata is just an especially dense, and therefore
opaque, "pattern" that lives in a central cell layer.
I've seen petals that showed no dotting or stippling on the open
front surface but had stippling across the back side of the petal
that didn't show through.
It's just a wondering... I'm still a newbie after all...
