Karyotype of the rare Johnston’s genetGenetta johnstoni (Viverridae) and a reassessment of chromosomal characterization among congeneric species


We present herein new data on karyotypes of members of the genusGenetta. G- and C-banded chromosomes of the Johnston’s genetGenetta johnstoni Pocock, 1908 (2n = 50 / FNa = 92) are described for the first time, and compared with those ofG. genetta (2n = 54 / FNa = 92). In addition, the standard karyotype ofG. maculata (2n = 52 / FNa = 96) was studied. A… (More)
