The chromosomes in the family studied to date were acrocentric (Araujo et al., 2017), however, Prakash and Prakash (2014) reported also metacentric, submetacentric and subtelocentric chromosomes in the karyotype of H.
spinulosus is metacentric (pairs 1, 2, 4 and X), subtelocentric (pairs 3 and 8), and submetacentric (pairs 5, [+ or -] and 7).
(2003) used four Astyanax scabripinnis populations to analyze B chromosome characteristics and identified three forms of Bs, a metacentric macrochromosome, a submetacentric, and a metacentric chromosome.
subflavus (MN82759, collected also in locality 6) presented variation in the sexual pair, in which the X chromosome is a large submetacentric and the Y is a small acrocentric (Fig.
The karyotypes constructed for the four striped venus clam populations (Figure 2) were roughly similar for 18 of the chromosome pairs (7 metacentric, 6 meta/submetacentric, 2 submetacentric, and 3 subtelocentric) but the remaining one (number 19 for comparative purposes) showed morphological differences.
The first two or three chromosome pairs usually are metacentric, metacentric--submetacentric or submetacentric. The other pairs are subtelocentric or acrocentric.

The X chromosome is a large metacentric, while the Y chromosome is a medium-sized submetacentric. The karyomorph found in Estancia San Luis is indistinguishable from that found in Costa Mansion, Ctenomys roigi's type locality (Ortells et al., 1990), less than 10 km from Estancia San Luis.
(2008) identified that one of the X chromosome pairs of females was submetacentric and the other one was acrocentric, and in males X chromosome was submetacentric.
