Five specimen of 9 populations and 17 populations of Muscari neglectum were analysed for karyotypic characters and seed proteins analysis respectively using multivariate statistical methods. Karyotypes were asymmetrical and placed in 2A and 2B classes of Stebbins karyotype classification. The level of ploidy were tetraploid, autopentaploid, hexaploid. Some of the popoulations showed decreasing and increasing aneuploidy. Seed protein analysis showed 32 bands which some of them were specific for a population. Cluster analysis of populations on the basis of karyotype and seed protein data carried out and showed close relation of the populations.
