Karyotypes, new to cytology, are described for seven North American species of wrens (Troglodytidae): Campylorhynchus brunneicapillus (2n = 74), Salpinctes obsoletus (2N = 80), Catherpes mexicanus (2N = 80), Thryothorus ludovicianus (2n = 76), Thryomanes bewickii (2N = 76), Cistothorus platensis (2N = 76), and Cistothorus palustris (2N = 76).
Cistothorus, Catherpes, and Salpinctes all share pairs four and five whereas Thryothorus, Thryomanes, and Campylorhynchus share pair four.
