Abstract

Chromosomes of four species of Indian hard ticks have been studied.  The diploid chromosome number in all the species is 21-22 with XO : XX sex determining mechanism.  All chromosomes are acrocentric and sex chromosomes are the longest element in the complement.  In the males, typical meiotic stages from diplotene through metaphase-II have been observed in most species. Only metaphase-I stages are found during female meiosis.
