I tried a veronica search and it turned up zip.  Eventually I would like to
put this sort of data on the comparative mapping Gopher I am setting up. 
This should be up and running by Christmas, but with about 600 loci in 30
species it is taking a while to get this info onto the computer and into a
useful format.  I will post details in early December.
If anyoune does have some comparative karyotypic data, such as digitised
pictures of karyotypes or diagrams, please let me know.
