A cytogenetic study on eight beetle species (Coleoptera:Carabidae, Scarabaeidae, Cerambycidae, Chrysomelidae) from Central Europe
Languages of publication
Karyotypic details were studied in males of eight beetle species from four families, viz. Carabidae: Elaphrus cupreus Duft. (2n=33, n=16+X), Elaphrus aureus Mull. (2n=31, n=15+X), Elaphrus ullrichii Redt. (2n=31, n=15+X); Scarabaeidae: Oxythyrea funesta (Poda) (2n=19, n=9+X); Cerambycidae: Agapanthia violacea (F.) (2n=20, n=9+Xyp), and Chrysomelidae: Oulema gallaeciana (Heyd.) (2n=16, n=7+Xyp), Colaphus sophiae (Schall.) (2n=27, n=13+X), Phaedon cochleariae (F.) (2n=34,n=16+Xyp). The chromosome number and sex determining system of four species are described for the first time. Evolutionary trends in karyotypes of the studied beetle groups are briefly discussed.
