Introducing the first karyotype from the genus Paramerina of the subfamily Tanypodinae (Diptera: Chironomidae)

A Maddi Reddy and S Ramakrishna

The first karyotype of an unspecified species (2n=12) from the genus Paramerina from the subfamily Tanypodinae collected from the south Indian geographical localities is presented. A tentative polytene chromosomal map was prepared and also the karyotype was prepared from somatic metaphase complement. The basic chromosomal number has been deduced from the karyotypes. Chromosomal descriptions also involve the patterns of C- bands and NOR localization. Head capsule morphology was used to arrive at the genus level identifications. Morphology of the shortest pompon-like chromosome has been discussed.
