persicus was consistent with those given by Matthey (9), Nuri et al (10), Vorontsov & Korobitsina (11), Benazzou et al (3), and Nuri and Ercument (12), but different from that given by Matthey (13) who reported that the diploid and the fundamental number
of 42 and 74, respectively.
theory with applications, 2d ed.
All animals had a diploid number (2N) of 54, and a fundamental number
(number of autosomal arms, FN) of 52 (Figs.
Diploid number (2N) was determined by counting at least 10 spreads, whereas fundamental number
was described from computer counts of selected spreads.
