The G, Q, and C bands and the location of the nucleolar organizing regions (NORs) of the chromosomes of two male Cercopithecus neglectus are described. The diploid number of the species is 2n =62. Comparison with the karyotypes of Miopithecus talapoin (2n =54), and Erythrocebus patas (2n =54)showed the presence of total banding homeology for only 10 chromosome pairs. © 1981 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
