Topische Merkmale, d. h. solehe Merkmale, die bei einer Intensitatszunahme sieh aueh raumlich ausdehnen, variieren in bezug auf ihre Ausdehnung vielleiehter als in bezug auf ihre Lokalisation (Eunomie), d. h. das "Muster" ist im Genotypus fester begriindet als seine Ausdehnung. Dem Muster kann in ganzer Ausdehnung ein identiseher Genotypus zugrunde liegen (isogenetische Eunomie) oder versehiedene Genkom bina tionen konnen zum gleiehen Muster fiihren (allogenetische Eunomien). Aber aueh bei versehiedenen isogenetisehen Eunomien kann die unmittelbare Verursaehung eines Musters eine versehiedene sein.
