The chromosome numbers of the two species of Byblis and their karyotypes are recorded, and compared here for the first time. The karyotype formulas for both species are as follows: Byblis gigantea Lindl.: K (2n = 14) = 2sat Aot + 2Bsm + 2Cm + 4D1ot + 2D2sm + 2Em; B. liniflora Salisb.: K (2n = 24) = 2A1sm + 2sat A2ot + 2Bsm + 2satCot + 2Dot + 2Eot + 2F1sm + 2sat F2ot + 4Got + 4Hot. Byblis is in an aneuploid series, and the basic chromosome numbers are X = 7 for B. gigantea and X = 12 for B. liniflora.
