In order to investigate the conventional karyotype of Eptesicus serotinus (Schreber, 1774) in Turkey, four specimens were karyotyped. It was determined that the diploid number was 2n=50, the number of autosomal arms was FN=50, the X chromosome was large submetacentric, and the Y chromosome was dot-like acrocentric and the smallest chromosome of the set. All of the autosomes were acrocentric. A secondary constriction on a medium-sized acrocentric pair was encountered in most of the metaphase spreads examined.
