Abstract

The karyotypes presented were obtained from short term blood cultures. The sex chromosomes, male — ZZ, female — ZW correspond to the 4th pair of macrochromosomes. The karyotypes are from a male specimen of Santa Catarina and from a female specimen of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Both are preserved in the Collection of the Instituto Butantan.
