Using both molecular and cytogenetic methods, we have examined and characterized eight Rumex species distributed throughout the Korean Peninsula. The somatic metaphase chromosomes in the Lapathum group were 2n=6x=60 in three of the species (R. crispus, R. japonicus and R. longifolius), 2n=5x=50 in one species (R. nipponicus), and 2n=4x=40 in two of the species (R. obtusifolius and R. maritinus). In the two dioecious groups, the chromosome numbers were 2n=6x=42 (female) and 43 (male) in R. acetocella, and 2n=2x=14 (female) and 15 (male) in R. acetosa.
