In Ornithodoros moubata the sex chromatin body could be demonstrated only
in the female interphase nuclei of the rectal ampulla, malpighian tubes, ganglion and
the accessory sex glands.
These findings allow the conclusion to be drawn that in this species heterochromosomal
conditions are present, the female having an XX-complex, while the male
has an XY-chromosome complement.
