Abstract

The mitotic karyotype of Ichthyophis kodaguensis consists of 2N=42 chromosomes (FN=60) including nine pairs of sub- and metacentrics and twelve pairs of acrocentrics. Conspicuous blocks of C positive bands were observed in the centromeric regions of all constituent chromosomes. Karyotypic comparison with related species indicated species-specificity of pericentric inversion.
