Abstract
Intraspecific craniometric variation in a population of Ctenomys minutus (2 n = 46, 47, and 48) from a hybrid zone was studied using univariate and mul tivariate techniques. The study showed greater morphological variation amon g females than among males Analysis of populations that contain hybrid form s suggest some degree of morphological divergence among cytotypes.
