A photograph of a gynandromorph of the Rosy Gypsy Moth(Lymantria mathura). Gynandromorphs arise from a genetic error in the chromosomes of the animal. This error results in the organism possessing characteristics of both sexes. Recently, a gynandromorph moth emerged at the Natural History Museum. One side of the moth had the appearance of a male, the other side had the appearance of a female.
