Linkage relationships between the locus for shiny pods (ace) and the loci for reclining foliage (rf) and pink (vlae) or white (v) flower color were studied in several crosses among common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) parents. Florida dry bean breeding line 5-593 (Ace Rf V.) was crossed with F3ace/ace Rf/rf V/vlae, and data were taken in F2. Selections from the previously mentioned F2, viz., F3ace Rf V, F3ace rf vlae plant no. 1 and F3ace rf vlae plant no. 2, were backcrossed to 5-593. Data were taken in F2 on segregation for pod, foliage, and flower characters. Linkage between Ace and V was 37 map units (cM), and linkage between Ace and Rf was 31 cM. A revised estimate for the linkage between Rf and V was 11 cM. The map orientation for linkage group VII is ace -31-rf-11-V.
