The expected number of silent alleles in an electromorph is computed for various values of population size (N), mutation rate (u), and sample size (s) under the assumption of no selection. The proportion of alleles undetectable by electrophoresis is higher when Nu is large than when this is small. It is shown that an electromorph of high population frequency has more silent alleles than an electromorph of low frequency if the sample size is the same.
