On the karyology of trematodes of the genus Microphallus and their intermediate gastropod host, Littorina saxatilis I. Chromosome analysis of three Microphallus species


The karyotypes of three marine trematode species of the genus Microphallus (Microphallidae), M. pygmaeus, M. piriformis and M. triangulatus, the most typical parasites of Littorina saxatilis (Gastropoda), are similar and include 9 pairs of bi-armed chromosomes, of which two pairs are represented by large meta- and submetacentrics, and 7 pairs are smaller… (More)
