As a part of ongoing cytogenetic studies on the jewel-beetles (Buprestidae, Coleoptera) of Armenia, the male karyotypes and meiosis of nine species (5 genera, 4 tribes, 2 subfamilies) are described, figured and discussed. In Ovalisia nadezhdae Sem., Sphenoptera artemisiae Reitt., Coraebus rubi L., C. sinuatus Creutz., Meliboeus caucasicus Reitt., Agrilus angustulus Ill. Men., A. obscuricollis Kiesw., and A. araxenus Khnz. diploid chromosome numbers vary in a narrow range from 20 to 24. In Sph… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Karyotypes of five species of jewel-beetles and presumptive ancestral state of karyotypes of the subfamilies Polycestinae , Chrysochroinae and Buprestinae ( Insecta : Coleoptera : Buprestidae )
TLDR
Three variants of autosomal chromosome numbers and two types of sex chromosome systems (Xyp and neo-XY) were revealed and the available karyological data on the subfamilies Polycestinae, Chrysochroinae and Buprestinae are discussed.
Insights into the karyotype evolution and speciation of the beetle Euchroma gigantea (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)
TLDR
Data indicate that chromosomal polymorphism in E. gigantea is greater than previously reported, and that the species can be a valuable model for cytogenetic studies.
Evolutionary Dynamics of Tropisternus Karyotype (Coleoptera: Hydrophilidae: Hydrophilini) from Southern Brazil
TLDR
This paper analyzes seventeen specimens of Tropisternus mutatus sapucay Fernández & Bachman from rivers from two localities in Southern Brazil and discusses the basal number and the possible divergence among the different Hydrophilidae species analyzed to date.
High levels of chromosomal differentiation in Euchroma gigantea L. 1735 (Coleoptera, Buprestidae)
TLDR
The karyotypic evolution of Brazilian E. gigantea may have taken two directions, reduction in the diploid number of 2n = 36 to 24 through centric fusions or 2n= 24 to 36 due to chromosomal fissions.
Cytogenetic characterization of Eurysternus caribaeus (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae): evidence of sex-autosome fusion and diploid number reduction prior to species dispersion
TLDR
The diploid number reduction observed in E. caribaeus is established and presumably has preceded the dispersion of this species, and this reduction occasioned the translocation of rDNA sites to the sex chromosomes, X and Y, an uncommon pattern in Scarabaeidae.
Karyotype analysis of four jewel-beetle species (Coleoptera, Buprestidae) detected by standard staining, C-banding, AgNOR-banding and CMA3/DAPI staining
TLDR
It is shown that C-positive segments are weakly visible in all four species which indicates a small amount of constitutive heterochromatin (CH).
Karyotype and sex chromosome differentiation in two Nalassus species (Coleoptera, Tenebrionidae)
TLDR
As a result of silver staining, the existence of highly impregnated areas associated with Xyp of Nalassus bozdagus in both prophase I and metaphase I, suggests that NORs are seemingly located on sex chromosomes.
Amplification of repetitive DNA and origin of a rare chromosomal sex bivalent in Deltochilum (Calhyboma) verruciferum (Coleoptera, Scarabaeidae)
TLDR
Results indicated that karyotypic differentiation in D. (C.) verruciferum involved autosomal amplification and dispersion of repetitive DNA and the origin of unusual sex chromosomes (XYp), generating a unique karyotype in this species.
Comparison of Microstructures on Elytral Disc of Some Species of the Genus Acmaeoderella Cobos, 1955 (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)
TLDR
Although the scales look alike under the stereo microscope, they showed a rather different pattern under SEM, the fine structure of scales was shown to be useful for species diagnostics.

Ag-banded karyotypes in six species of jewel-beetles (Coleoptera, Buprestidae).
TLDR
The male karyotypes of six species of the buprestid genera Sphenoptera and Acmaeoderella were studied after Ag-banding and two chromosome pairs were found to display stable argentophilous blocks.
Chromosomes and their Meiotic Behavior in Two Families of the Primitive Infraorder Dipsocoromorpha (Heteroptera)
TLDR
Five species belonging to the two families of Dipsocoromorpha were studied and the evolution of autosomal number, m-chromosomes, and sex chromosome systems within and in the whole Heteroptera was discussed.
Chromosome numbers of Coleoptera from Argentina
TLDR
A list is presented containing data on chromosome numbers and sex determining mechanisms of 90 species of Argentina beetles, belonging to the families Staphylinidae, Meloidae, Elateridae, Tenebrionidae, Scarabaeidae, and Chrysomelidae.
Chromosome numbers of Coleoptera1
TLDR
A complete revision of Makino's list of chromosome numbers of Coleoptera is warranted, since it is only through a logical grouping based on current concepts of taxonomic relationships that the full import of the cytological findings becomes evident.
