To elucidate the cytotaxonomic relationships of endemic Baicalian asellides, the mitotic and meiotic chromosome configurations of Baicalasellus angarensis (Isopoda) were investigated. It was shown that the haploid chromosome number of B. angareresis is: n = 8; sex chromosomes have not been found. The karyotype of B. angarensis was found to be strikingly similar to the karyotype of Asellus aquaticus. It differs from the latter only by the morphology of a single chromosome pair and the number of chiasmata in metaphase 1. On the other hand, it differs markedly from the Japanese Asellus hilgendorfi. Possible implications of this finding on the current view of the origin of Baicalian isopods are discussed.
