A detailed karyotype analysis was carried out on several populations of Bangia atropurpurea (Roth) C. Agardh from marine and freshwater habitats in Italy. All the populations studied had a constant somatic chromosome number of n = 3. A statistical analysis of chromosomal dimensions allowed the recognition of a consistent difference in the size of chromosome 3.
