A cytological study for the species of Boehmeria Jacq. (Urticaceae) of Nepal is carried out for the first time. 2n = 28 chromosomes are determined for all the individuals studied. Hence Boehmeria species in Nepal Himalaya appear to be diploid and considered to be reproduced sexually in reference to the studies of Boehmeria species in Japan where polyploidy and apomixis are common in the species of Boehmeria.
