The discovery of a cell with a haploid no. of diplochromosomes in prepns. of colchicine-treated onion root tips led to a search for haploid anaphases in treated roots permitted to recover in water. No haploid anaphases were seen. Apart from the divisional stages of diploid and tetraploid nuclei, cells with 2 pro-, meta-, and anaphases were obsd. The formation of distinct cell boundaries by each nucleus of an originally multinucleate cell indicated their potentialities in this direction.
