Short Communications


The karyotype and chromosomal polymorphism of Glyptotendipes glaucus from Lake Kotokel were examined. The degree of the chromosomal polymorphism was rather low, constituting 2.2% heterozygotes and 0.02 inversions per individual. A single glaA4 inversion banding sequence, new to the species, was found in the 46 larvae studied.
