This work was carried out to determine and describe the karyology and the ideogram of the crayfish, Procambarus digueti. A new technique for the cytogenetic study of freshwater Decapoda was adapted for these investigations. For P. digueti, the fundamental chromosome number is f.n. = 204, with a diploid number 2n = 102. The chromosomal formula is 35 mediocentrics (M), 15 metacentrics (m), and one submetacentric (St). We discuss the usefulness of cytogenetic methodology in discriminating closely related taxa, and, also, as a tool for supporting existing taxonomic criteria.
