The five species studied fell into three groups on the basis of similarities in chromosome morphology: (1) A. globosum and A. talassicum, (2) A. korolkowii and (3) A. setifolium and A. subtilissimum. All proved to be diploids with 2n = 16 chromosomes. Idiograms for each of the species are given. Species of group 1 were karyotypically similar to A. petraeum, A. filifolium and A. tianschanicum.
