I guess there hasn't been enough work done on this to say for sure. My 
understanding was that the glaciata pla was located at the pl allele, and 
the luminata plu 'might' be or perhaps not. This might be worked out using 
statistics, if someone was willing to do enough crosses, and spend time 
growing them on, and testing the crosses, and recording the results. That is 
probably nearly as big an ask, as expecting someone to unravel the DNA 
strand, and translate the results using electron microscopy, or whatever 
fancy techniques they use these days.
I think it would be more fun just hypothesising the results of a cross, from 
studying it's pedigree, then doing the cross and seeing what shows up.

Cheers, Jan
