Is there any reason not beleive it is a chromosome loss mosaic?  I mean
like the X loss mosaics in Drosophila melanogaster gynandromorphs?  If
it was a chromosome other than the X that was lost at the first cell
division one would get a bilateral mosaic if the chromosomes in question
were heterozyous for the colour markers and the one bearing the 
dominant alleles were lost.  If it were the X, one would expect the
sex to be also split.
