Abstract We established 20 cell lines, designated as ML-DmD1-20, from wing, haltere, antenna, eye-antenna discs and disc mixtures. The profiles of primary cultures and successful frequencies of cultures seemed to differ depending on disc types. The cell aggregates formed in the primary culture were examined for their differentiation capa-cities by injecting them into metamorphosing larvae. At the early stage of in vitro culture, they differentiated into adult cuticular structures containing bristles and/or trichomes which were indicative of disc origin.
