Thanks Paul, it's easy enough to change names later as some "authority" comes up with names. I've noticed in wandering around the JAX website that many genes have been renamed.

I took the link you gave me and sort of put it together here, tell me if I have it right. I've also summarized and left a lot out, and added a few things. Dunno what it is about me, I just have to see little letters to figure out genes. :)

Amelanistic
A = normal amount of black pigment
a = amelanistic tyrosine inhibited… black pigment is white, eyes are pink.

Anerythristic
AX = normal amount of red pigment
ax = Anerythristic… no red pigment, instead shades of gray, with some yellow present.

Caramel
CA = normal amount of red pigment
ca = red pigment is altered to be yellow.

Charcoal
CH = normal amount of red and yellow.
ch = no red or yellow pigment.

Hypomelanistic
HY = normal amount of black.
hy = reduced but not eliminated amount of black pigment.

Lavender
LA = Normal amount of red and black pigment.
la = greatly reduced red and slightly reduced black pigment.

Motley
MO = normal pattern
mo = Blotches run together and checkers do not appear on belly.
most = Striped. Codominant with mo.

Blood Red
PB = normal pattern
pb = plain belly. (blood red). Normal dark checkering on the belly absent, blotches diffused.

ZigZag
ZI = normal pattern.
zi = Zigzag converts the blotched pattern into a zigzag pattern. Belly is checkered.

Okeetee
OK = Normal pattern
ok = okeetee pattern, deep orange-red base color, broad black borders.

Miami
MI = Normal Pattern
mi = base color grayish, with some tints of yellow.

Piebald
