Polyploidy in the common tree toad Hyla versicolor Le Conte.

Abstract

A karyotype of the first known naturally occurring anuran polyploid in North America is described. Hyla versicolor, the common tree toad, is tetraploid (2n-->4n=48). Individual chromosmes representing, each set of four of the Hyla versicolor karyotype correspond closely with those of the diploid (2n = 24) Hyla andersonii karyotype.
