Specimens of <I>Edalorhina perezi</I> Jiménez de la Espada from the Brazilian Amazon were studied cytogenetically using Giemsa staining, silver staining and C-banding. The diploid complement of 2n=22 agreed with the chromosome number previously described for <I>Edalorhina</I> sp. Morphologically, the <I>E. perezi</I> karyotype resembled those of <I>Physalaemus</I> and <I>Pleurodema</I> species, but NOR localization and C-banding were unable to detect accurate homologies between <I>E. perezi</I> karyotype and those of the <I>Physalaemus</I> and <I>Pleurodema</I> species studied to date.
