Funambulus pennenti, the striped Indian squirrel, is a small arborial rodent characterized by three white stripes on its dorsal surface and two on the sides and is the predominant species of Northern India. So far as we are aware, the chromosome number of this species has not been reported. In fact, no information is available on chromosome numbers of any member of the genus Funambulus, family Sciuridae1. The results of an investigation into chromosome number and karyotype of this species are summarized in this report.
