Please note that in 2016 there was a publication by H.Lacin and J.Truman "Lineage mapping identifies molecular and architectural similarities between the larval and adult Drosophila central nervous system", eLife 2016;5:e13399. DOI: 10.7554/eLife.13399.
They describe two new embryonic lineages and assign 7 embryonic NBs to different larval lineages compared to the data presented here.
