One strain of mulberry silkworm Bombyx mori L., namely NB4D2 at the age of the fifth instar, was selected as an experimental insect. During the fifth instar, testes were used to prepare meiotic chromosomes. The air dry technique for preparing meiotic chromosomes was developed and standardised. Both temporary and permanent micro slides showed clear different stages of meiosis. The different meiotic stages were observed under 1000x magnification and photographed using conventional photographic techniques.
Keywords: Silkworm, Testes, Gonial Metaphase, Meiotic Chromosomes.
