Chromosomes of spermatogonial cells from young larvae of Apis mellifera were analyzed by means of G- and C-banding techniques. They consist of 4 meta-centrics and 12 submeta- or subtelo-centrics. G-banding patterns so far as no. 1 to no. 6 and no. 14 to no. 16 were concerned, they were stably distinguished. Nos. 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and one from no. 8 to no. 16 showed C-bands. Even with these banding techniques, no sex chromosomes were found in this study.
