The "Cordovan" morph of Italian bees. It is a simple, recessive color trait. As a single alllele recessive trait, it is an indicator of inbreeding, but the color morph is also prized. I have numerous hives with very rapid brood expansion with that color trait. They make a good marker for parentage in open breeding systems.
