FISH using a telomeric probe in Leptodactylus. A. mitotic metaphase of L. pentadactylus; B. mitotic metaphase of L. podicipinus; C. mitotic metaphase of Leptodactylus sp. (aff. podicipinus); D. mitotic metaphase of L. marmoratus; E. initial meiotic nuclei of L. pentadactylus showing polarisation of the telomeric labelling. Note the centromeric hybridisation signals in chromosomes 1, 2, and other unidentified large- and medium-sized chromosomes in B; in chromosomes of one small-sized pair (arrows) in C; and in chromosomes 1 and in telocentric chromosomes 6 in D. Bar = 10 μm.
