Y chromosome in the sibling speciesAnopheles atroparvus (van Thiel, 1927) andA. labranchiae (Falleroni, 1926) (Diptera: Culicidae): Differential behaviour of the short arm after acid-alkaline treatment and Coriphosphine-O staining

An acid-alkaline treatment followed by Coriphosphine-O staining was used for detecting chromosomal differences between the 2 sibling speciesAnopheles atroparvus (van Thiel) andA. labranchiae (Falleroni) (Diptera: Culicidae). The short arm of the Y chromosome was found to stain differently in the 2 species.
