The Choeroniscus genus (Glossophaginae, Phyllostomidae) has five monotypic species: C. minor, C. godmani, C. intermedius, C. inca and C. periosus. This paper analyses the karyotype of a female C. minor, collected close to the Guama river (Belém, Para, Brazil). G-, C-banding and NOR-staining were performed. This species has 2n = 20 chromosomes, where there are two bi-armed pairs (numbers 1 and 9) and seven subtelocentric pairs (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8). The probable X chromosome is a… CONTINUE READING
