Linkage groups of a culicine mosquito, Culex tritaeniorhynchus, have been assigned to their respective chromosomes by genetic and cytologic observations of radiation-induced aberrations. Linkage group I is assigned to the smallest chromosome, linkage group II to the submetacentric chromosome, and linkage group III to the metacentric chromosome.
