The chromosome number of Sargassum thunbergii (Mertens ex Roth) Kuntze (Fucales, Phaeophyta) was determined as n=32 at late prophase and early metaphase in the first nuclear divisions in the antheridia. One of the chromosomes was detected as a large element at metaphase in the nuclear divisions leading to the spermatia formation in the antheridia.
