  1. The specific positions of co-locations are indicated by (p) proximal or (i) interstitial.
  2. Hyphens correspond to absent chromosomes in the species with 2n = 19 and species in which animals with B chromosome were not studied for these markers or in which this element was never observed. Asterisks indicate additional sites of 5S rDNA that are not co-located with H3 histone genes for some species.
