Abstract
Karyotypes of 13 species in the anuran family Hyperoliidae are described based on conventional staining, C-banding, Ag-
NOR-banding and staining with fluorochromes (CMA3 and DAPI). The nine studied species of the Malagasy genus
Heterixalus, as well as African species of Acanthixalus, Hyperolius and Kassina, had a karyotype of 2n524 biarmed
