Chromosome numbers were determined for 70 plants of Sanguisorba albiflora, endemic to subalpine areas of Tohoku district, Japan. This species was found to consist two cytotypes, octaploid (2n=56) and dodecaploid (2n=84). The two cytotypes have different distribution ranges, which overlap at Mount Gassan only. A hyperdodecaploid with 2n=85 was rarely found in a dodecaploid population.
