Abstract

The genus Phanaeus is included in the tribe Phanaeini, one of the most diverse tribes within the subfamily Scarabaeinae in terms of chromosomal characteristics. However, so far the species of this genus were not studied with differential cytogenetic techniques, limiting any inference of the...

Abstract

Karyological investigations were carried out on five species of tiger beetles from the Afrotropical Region belonging to the tribes Megacephalini and Cicindelini. The species have distinct karyotypes either in the number of autosomes and heterosomes or in size and shape of the chromosomes: ...

Abstract

In laboratory experiments, a pentanucleotide telomeric sequence identified from chromosomes of Bombyx mori hybridized to DNAs from 8 of 11 orders of insect species tested but not to vertebrate DNAs, suggesting that this repetitive sequence is conserved widely among insects. Based on the experiments ...

Abstract

The Puerto Rican beetles of the tribe Oedionychini are cytologically typical of the inferred sister subtribes Disonychina and Oedionychina. In 4 Disonychina (including Disonycha spilotrachela, D. comma and D. eximia), metacentric autosomes prevailed. Interspecific differences were expressed mainly...

Abstract

Thirty-seven species of tenebrionids from mainland Spain and the Balearic and Canary Islands were surveyed for nuclear DNA content of Feulgen-stained spermatids. The results for these and 7 other species reported previously showed that the range of haploid 1C genome sizes was moderate at 0.18-0.86...

Abstract

In this review, which was presented at an international symposium on recent advances in cytogenetics research, held at Kurukshetra (India), recent findings on the understanding of karyotypic patterns of the tribes Cicindelini, Zabrini and Brachinini, which are illustrative of some of the different...

Abstract

B-chromosomes are decsribed for the first time in the 1st and 2nd meiotic metaphases of Astycus sp. and Phytoscaphus inductus. The number of B-chromosomes was limited to one per cell, and they did not pair with any member of the normal chromosome complement. The size of the B-chromosomes, which was ...

Abstract

Twenty-five species of tenebrionids mainly endemic to the Canary Islands showed a range in their chromosome number (2n) from 18 to 22. The most frequent sex-chromosome system was an Xyp but a few species had a neoXY chiasmatic sex system, probably derived from the former. Two species had...

Abstract

Diversity of male diploid numbers was analyzed for 8 families and 24 genera of Coleoptera. The Scarabaeidae, Elateridae, Coccinellidae, Cerambycidae and, in some respects, Tenebrionidae were chromosomally conservative families, while the Carabidae, Chrysomelidae and Curculionidae were highly...
