Hello Fly Community!
I'm a master's student and I'm currently working with drosophila melanogaster mutants.
Right now I have a mutant that has dark spots in various regions of the fly's body (in the larval stage and in the adult fly).
According to some literature, I think they possibly are necrotic spots or melanocytic tumors. However, I still haven't been able to find an adequate technique that would allow me to define and characterize these dark spots as a tumor.
I would be grateful if anyone could please help me.  

Best Regards,
Bruna Oliveira
