  • ISSN : 1021-3589



Karyotypes of southern African Myrmeleontidae are descriptionbed for the first time and were found to be as follows: Myrmeleon alcestris Banks, 2n 12 + XV; Myrmeleon obscurus Rambur, 2n = 12 + XV; Centroclisis brachygaster (Rambur), 2n 12 + XV; Palparidius concinnus Peringuey, 2n = 16 + XY and Palpares sobrinus Pennguey;. 2n = 20 + XV. These species have a typical neuropteroid karyotype, displaying distance segregation, male XV-sex chromosome setup and relative stability in terms of chromosome number and morphology.
