Abstract Karyotypes of Leposoma show a clear differentiation between species of the scincoides group from Brazilian Atlantic Forest (2n  =  52, without distinctive size groups of chromosomes) and those of the parietale group from the Amazon (2n  =  44, with 20M + 24m). In a previous study, we found that in the parietale group the parthenoform Leposoma percarinatum from the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil, exhibited a triploid karyotype (3n  =  66) with 30 macrochromosomes and 36 microchromosomes… Expand
