Abstract

The chromosome numbers of 119 species of reptiles that occur in the south Asian region are listed. The inventory includes three crocodiles, 13 turtles, 54 lizards and 49 snakes. This represents about a fourth of the known species of the subcontinent. Cytogenetic information in many cases offers clues to the detection of cryptic species overlooked by morphological taxonomists.
