The chalmersia is an unnoticeable 13-limit comma with a ratio of 123201/123200 and a size of approximately 0.014 ¢. It is the smallest 13-limit superparticular comma. Tempering it out equates 351/350 and 352/351, thus splitting 176/175 into two, and equates 385/351 and 351/320, thus splitting 77/64 into two – these are features highly characteristic of chalmersic temperaments. In addition, it equates a stack consisting of a 729/512 tritone plus a 169/128 grave fourth with a stack consisting of a 25/16 augmented fifth plus a 77/64 minor third.
It factors into the two smallest 17-limit superparticular ratios: 123201/123200 = (194481/194480)(336141/336140).
Temperaments
Tempering out the comma in the full 13-limit gives the rank-5 chalmersic temperament.

Etymology
The chalmersia was named by Gene Ward Smith in 2003 after John Chalmers^{[1]}.
- The remarkable 123201/123200 might be named the chalmersia, since John Chalmers is presumably the first to see it.
