In terms of verifying the parentage of any purported albino alterna, please know that mtDNA analysis won't do the trick, as it ONLY tracks maternal mtDNA. Thus, if mom was an alterna and father was something else (such as ruthveni or a ruthveni mix), the mtDNA will indicate "pure" alterna. In short, such a test is useless for this type of question.
