Intraspecies chromosomal polymorphism has been established in wild boars (1, 2). It has been suggested that this polymorphism is due to centric or Robertsonian fusion of two acrocentrics into a single submetacentric (1, 3). The analysis of the cytogenetic features of sub-species of wild boars inhabiting the European and Asian regions of USSR is of interest in view of the fact that karyotype differentiation may be be applied to evolutionary, taxonomic and phylogenetic studies of pigs as well as other domestic animals (4).
