A karyological study conducted by both conventional and banding staining methods (Ag-NOR-, CMA 3 , and C- banding) evidenced a peculiar heterochromatin pattern on chromosomes of Moldovan specimens of the agile frog, Rana dalmatina . As is normal for all agile frogs, the Moldovan population presented 2 n = 26 chromosomes, with NOR loci on the short arms of the third chromosome pair, but differed in showing heavy centromeric, CMA 3 positive C-bands on the seventh chromosome pair, and light centromeric, DAPI positive C-bands on five chromosome pairs.
