An examination of the relationships of the cellular antigens of eight species of Streptopelia reveals primarily a mosaic of interlocking relationships of the antigenic substances of each species with those of the others. These have been presented diagrammatically for one species (Pearlneck) for which the cellular antigens specific to it in comparison with Ring dove have been isolated as units in the backcross populations, following an original cross with Ring dove. On the basis of relative relationships of their cellular antigens, these eight species could be assigned to three fairly well-defined groups. Each species probably possesses one or more antigenic substances with specificities which distinguish it from all the other species. Presumably the relationships of the genes effecting the cellular antigens in the respective species parallel the relationships of the antigenic substances.
