The karyotype of the coelacanth is reported for the first time. Latimeria chalumnae has a 48-chromosome karyotype that contains metacentric, subtelocentric, and telocentric chromosomes as well as microchromosomes. This karyotype is unlike those found in lung-fishes but is very similar to the 46-chromosome karyotype of one of the ancient frogs, Ascaphus truei.
