Karyomorphological details pertaining to chromosome measurements in 23 taxa of South Indian Acanthaceae have been described. Chromosome numbers determined in the present study ranges from 2n=18 to 2n=80. Karyotypes in the family also show differences in absolute chromosome length indicating changes in nuclear DNA in evolution. No definite trend of either phylogentic increase or dercrease of chromosome size is indicated by the available data.
