Abstract

Crocus corsicus, an endemic to Corsica has 2n = 18 chromosomes.C. minimus from Corsica and Sardinia has 2n = 24, but plants with 2n = 25, 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30, including a variable number of telocentric chromosomes, were found in some populations in south-eastern Corsica. A natural hybrid (2n = 22) betweenC. corsicus (2n = 18) andC. minimus (2n = 26) is… (More)
