Abstract or Summary
  • The karyotypes of five species of ranid frogs were determined from metaphase plates of bone marrow cells. The colchicine, hypotonic- citrate, blaze-dry technique was used to obtain the plates. Morphometric datawere obtained from the karyotypes and compared with other species of the genus Rana. Like most other members of the genus Rana, the five species examined in this study have 26 chromosomes. These can be divided into a group of five large pairs and a group of eight small pairs. Relative chromosomal length is similar in all species. However, differences are apparent. Rana aurora has more metacentric chromosomes than the other species. R. cascadae has one pair of subtelocentric chromosomes and R. muscosa has three pairs of telocentric chromosomes. Comparisons of chromosomal arm ratios confirm the present taxonomy of the species. R. cascadae is more similar to R. pretiosa than to R. aurora. R. boylii and R. muscosa can be separated from the other three by two pairs of chromosomes.
