THE KARUOTYPE OF <i> Monodelphis americana</i> (MARSUPIALIA-DIDELPHIDAE)

  • Alfredo Langguth
  • J. Fernando S. Lima

Resumo

The karyotype of Monodelphis americana has a 2n=18 and a NA=22 as other known species of Monodelphis. Karyometrics and G-bands showed differences between M. americana and other species of the genus, suggesting that the karyotype uniformity described in Didelphidae may not be so rigid as assumed in the literature.
