  • The recently described species Somatochlora borisi MARINOV, 2001 (Odonata: Corduliidae), combines morphological characters of two relative corduliide genera, Somatochlora and Cordulia. In the present study its karyotype was studied for the first time. Routine and differential (C-banding and DNA binding fluorochrome staining) cytogenetic techniques were applied. The chromosome formula of S. borisi includes 2n=20+XX/XY. For comparison, the male karyotype of S. metallica (from Finland), S… CONTINUE READING
