Llama (Llama glama L.) fibre is especially appreciated because of the high quality of undercoat and because of the large number of natural colours (Frank et al., 1985 ; Delgado et al., 2001 ; Ayala, 2001 ; Ayala et al., 2001 ; Quispe et al., 2001). Coat colour of llama has been classified by several authors (for a review see Renieri, 1996). In order to establish correct reproductive practices to uniform pigmentary patterns, E.C. INCO Programme SUPREME funded a plan of segregation analysis on Argentinian llamas. The phenotypes involved on the experimental plan are : pheomelanic with eumelanic extremities (PEE), wild (W) and eumelanic black (EB). PEE is a pheomelanic (red or light brown) phenotype with deeply eumelanic extremities ; W is light fawn phenotype with a white zone extension out of the belly, little black hair on head and limb extremities ; EB is an entirely eumelanic black phenotype (Frank, 1995
