Unequivocal identification of the Y chromosome of the Indian river buffalo (B. bubalis) was not possible by conventional techniques as it could not be distinguished from the small acrocentric autosomes. Based on C-band characteristics and relative length measurements, it is proposed that the Y chromosome is not the smallest acrocentric but is intermediary in length between the 19th and 20th pairs. Supporting evidence to this hypothesis accrues from G-banding.
