The chromosomes of the Euchlaena parent are described, from which it is seen that they are very similar to those of maize, although certain differences are pointed out. Pairing was complete and meiosis quite regular in the hybrid with Chalco or Durango teosinte, 2 and sometimes 4 unpaired chromosomes were observed when Florida teosinte was used, in which case size differences could be detected between the chromosomes which failed to pair.
