Summary

Diploid-triploid and diploid-triploid-tetraploid mosaic individuals were found in the progeny of gynogenetic triploid fish,Carassius auratus langsdorfii. In the mosaic specimens, the blood contained diploid and triploid cells, or diploid, triploid and tetraploid cells. Mosaicism was also observed in the spermatids in the testis of the diploid-triploid-tetraploid mosaic specimen.
