Karyotypic diversity in a population of Bryconamericus aff. iheringii (Characidae)
Bryconamericus comprises 56 species distributed into three groups, on the basis of the position and shape of the maxillary teeth: B. exodon, B. microcephalus and B. iheringii groups. Few cytogenetic data are available for this genus, but the diploid number of 52 chromosomes is quite common, although the karyotypic variability is extensive. This study aimed to characterize a population of B. aff. iheringii and thus contribute more cytogenetic information and better understanding of the structure and karyotypic evolution of this genus.
