The karyotype of Neurergus strauchii shows pericentric and subterminal C-bands heterochromatin and nucleolar organizers on chromosome IX. This site is revealed by both a C-band and a chromomycin A3 fluorescent band; the GC-specific fluorochrome also highlights additional sites of fluorescence. The lampbrush chromosomes have a general morpho-structural feature known for Triturus lampbrush chromosomes, but giant loops are lacking. Nucleolar organizer and sphere sites are the main cytogenetic markers in the lampbrush karyotype of Neurergus. The implication of these results to our understanding of cytotaxonomy and evolutionary biology of Palearctic Salamandrids is discussed.
