Abstract Tropidacris Scudder, 1869 is a genus widely distributed throughout the Neotropical region where speciation was probably promoted by forest reduction during the glacial and interglacial periods. There are no cytogenetic studies of Tropidacris, and information allowing inference or confirmation of the evolutionary events involved in speciation within the group is insufficient. In this paper, we used cytogenetic markers in two species, Tropidacris collaris (Stoll, 1813) and Tropidacris… Expand
Cytogenetic analysis of five Ctenidae species (Araneae): detection of heterochromatin and 18S rDNA sites
TLDR
C banding stained with fluorochromes CMA3 and DAPI revealed two distributions patterns of GC-rich heterochromatin: in terminal regions of most chromosomes, as presented in C. medius, P. nigriventer, E. cyclothorax and V. andicola, and in interstitial regions ofMost chromosomes, in addition to terminal regions, as observed for C. ornatus.

New insights into the six decades of Mesa’s hypothesis of chromosomal evolution in Ommexechinae grasshoppers (Orthoptera: Acridoidea)
TLDR
The hypothesis about the occurrence of an early pericentric inversion in the ancestor of Ommexechinae is supported and a complex karyotype diversification pattern due to several chromosome rearrangements, variations in heterochromatin and repetitive DNA dynamics is shown. Expand
Cytogenetic markers applied to cytotaxonomy in two soybean pests: Anticarsia gemmatalis (Hübner, 1818) and Chrysodeixis includens (Walker, 1858)
TLDR
The cytogenetic analyses enabled the transference of A. gemmatalis from the family Noctuidae to the family Erebidae, suggesting new cytotaxonomic characteristics, and variations in heterochromatin distribution were observed between both species. Expand
Chromosome mapping in Abracris flavolineata (De Geer, 1773) (Orthoptera) from the Iguaçu National Park – Foz do Iguaçu, Paraná, Brazil
TLDR
The results added to the existing cytogenetic studies provided evidence of great karyotypic plasticity in the species, which may be the result of vicariant events related to the geographical distribution of different populations of A. flavolineata. Expand
A New Approach to Chromosomal Evolution in the Giant Water Bug (Heteroptera: Belostomatidae)
TLDR
A new evolutionary hypothesis for the genus Belostoma is proposed, with an ancestral karyotype with a low diploid number, simple sex determination system, and nucleolus organizer regions (NORs) on the sex chromosomes. Expand

Possible autosomal origin of macro B chromosomes in two grasshopper species
TLDR
The occurrence of B chromosomes in all nine R. brasiliensis populations analyzed indicates that they are widely distributed in Northeastern Brazil, and the small amount of interpopulation variation found for B chromosome prevalence suggests the existence of high gene flow, presumably due to the abundance of this grasshopper species on several types of vegetation and its relatively high flight capability.

Studies on chiasma distribution and chiasma movement in Zoniopoda tarsata (Orthoptera: Romaleidae)
TLDR
It is indicated that terminalization does exist in this species and the movement may occur towards the centromere, and the number of interestitial chiasmata, which are the most important in controlling the genetical recombination, is mainly regulated by changes in chiasma distribution, while variations in total chIASma frequency are of much lower magnitude.
