Conventional staining with 2% Giemsa of meiotic chromosomes of five species of Reduviidae. A Apiomerus lanipes: Metaphase I. 2n = 22 + XY B Cosmoclopius nigroannulatus. Metaphase I. 2n = 24 + X1X2X3Y C Zelus laticornis Metaphase I. 2n = 24 + XY D Montina confusa. Metaphase II. 2n = 12 + XY E Repipta flavicans. Metaphase I. 2n = 18 + XY. The arrowheads indicate the sex chromosomes. Bar = 5┬Ám.
