In crosses betweenP. lagopus trisomic for chromosome 4 and normal disomics the extra chromosome is transmitted to about 1/4 of the progeny through the male side and to over 1/2 on the female side. Among the progeny some non-parental types which include a tetrasomic (2x + 2) and an aneutriploid (3x + 1) were also found. Chromosomal behaviour during their male meiosis is described.
