G-banded metaphase preparations from cultured fibroblasts were used to examine the karyotypes of Petrogale lateralis pearsoni and the West Kimberley (WK) race of P. lateralis. Petrogale lateralis pearsoni was found to retain the ancestral 2n = 22 Petrogale karyotype, while the WK race (2n = 20) was found to be characterized by a 9-10 centric fusion. This taxon had been reported to have an 8-10 fusion. Karyotypic analysis was also used to identify Petrogale populations in the Erskine Range… CONTINUE READING
