Somatic chromosomes of Acridotheres fuscus fuscus Wagler and Acridotheres tristis tristis Linnaeus

Somatic chromosomes of Acridotheres fuscus fuscus Wagler and Acridotheres tristis tristis Linnaeus

Cytologia (Tokyo): 453: 403-410

The somatic chromosome number of the jungle myna, A. f. fuscus, and the common myna, A. t. tristis, both belonging to the family Sturnidae, is 74 and 80, respectively. The sex mechanism is of the ZZ/ZW type. The W-chromosome is the smallest macrochromosome and can easily be identified. The macro- and microchromosomes have the same staining affinity and are in no way different except in their size.
