Several species of tsetse fly within the Morsitans and Fusca subgenera of Glossina contain supernumerary (B) chromosomes. Previous studies on the meiotic behaviour of chromosomes (Southern and Pell, 1973) and the C-band patterns (Jordan et al., 1977) have indicated a close similarity between the Y chromosome and the supernumeraries. The distributions of the highly abundant families of DNA (satellite DNAs) between the autosomes, sex chromosomes and B chromosomes of G.m. morsitans, G. austeni and… CONTINUE READING
