Chromosome banding analysis of seven diploid parthenogenetic females from Polynesian and Southeast Asian populations of the unisexual-bisexual Lepidodactylus lugubris complex (Reptilia, Gekkonidae) showed that the unisexual karyotype consists of two different haploid sets. Similar analysis of an L. lugubris male from a bisexually reproducing population revealed two identical chromosome complements, the banding pattern generally matching that of the females, although many chromosomes were… CONTINUE READING
