Mimikry/Dawkins: Does not know any intermediates: every representative would be eaten immediately.
I 69
Question: How can a single gene be responsible for all the various aspects of mimicry: color, shape, spots, flight rhythm?

An entire gene group can behave like a single gene! It has an "allele" which in reality is a different gene group.
