Homologous somatic pairing is the physical colocation and pairing of the paternal and maternal chromosomes in a cell during growth phases of a cell. This is interesting as most taxa that we know about do not have paired parental haplotypes except during meiosis or mitosis.

Is there any evidence of homologous somatic pairing in any taxa aside from Dipterans or budding yeast?
