VMartin more dishonesty.  Every appeal to anti-selection you have made has been straight from the german school.  This school has two camps:  materialist and mystic.

Where does aposematic coloration come from?  

Remember this is two questions:  I think you are interested in the primary (from where does the coloration or patterning arise).  This is not a selective issue.  Your antiselectionist lit examples (convenient how your best stuff 'is not available in english', eh?) that i am familiar with posit channels or furrows of development that are more or less hard wired.  

The question 'how does mimicry become fixed in populations' is clearly answered by selection.  While I could be convinced otherwise and sometimes have, I find it hard to believe you could be so thick as to deny this.

So, back to the question.  Where does aposematic coloration come from?  I wanna hear it.  Mind precedes matter and butterflies think it into existence?  Or is it a spandrel?
