Summary

Twelve animals of the speciesEllobius lutescens from two generations were studied with various chromosomal banding techniques. This species carries 17 chromosomes in both sexes. In preceding studies chromosomal sex determination was assigned to different structural variants of chromosome No. 1. In the present study, no definite chromosomal basis for sex determination was found.

Key words
