1. Nothoscordum inutile was found to have 2n=16, and n=8 chromosomes. The complements were classified into three groups from a morphological point of view.
2. Out of 2n=16 chromosomes, four are nucleolar chromosomes, showing a heterochromaty. The heterochromatic region is located in the proximal ends of short arms of two chromosomes and in the distal ends of short arms of the other two.
3. The former chromosomes are furnished with large centromeres which are nucleolus organizing regions.
