The karyotypes were kindly donated by Dr. M. Gallardo (Valdivia, Chile) and were prepared from lymphocytes of young animals injected with colchicine. The animals are registered (IZVA284; 319) in the Instituto de Zoologia, Universidad Austral, and come from Chile. The karyotypes are essentially identical to those of Dusicyon vetulus, the hoary fox (2).
