Resumen:
The karyotype of Luzuriaga radicans R. & P. was quantitatively studied, assessing characters such as chromosome morphology and size, satellite location, asymmetry level and bimodality. L. radicans has an asymmetric and bimodal karyotype 2n = 20 with three metacentric pairs, followed by six submetacentric and one subtelocentric chromosome pair. One satellite was observed in the short arm of chromosome pair 6. The total haploid set length was 48.7 μm and the mean chromosome size was 4.87 ± 2.35 μm. Comparing L. radicans with other two species of the genus a high resemblance among their karyotypes was found. © 2010 Versita Warsaw and Springer-Verlag Wien.
