Description:PLICATUROPSIS CRISPA (Pers.: Fr.) D. Reid.
Mats white, around inocula moderately thick, appressed to slightly raised, felty to woolly, then becoming raised, cottony to woolly toward margins at 2 wk, by 6 wk white with scattered Ochraceous-Buff, Raw Sienna, or Sudan Brown areas, moderately thick to thick, slightly raised to raised, felty to woolly, often mycelia growing up sides of dish, sometimes with hyphal strands radiating from inocula and forming a coarse reticulum; margins even, slightly raised to raised, fimbriate, cottony; odor sweet at 2 and 6 wk; no agar discoloration at 2 and 6 wk; not fruiting by 6 wk.
MEA 23-43(-60); (60-)85-90+; GAA ++++, rarely -, tr-15; tr-21 ; TAA + or ++++, 0-tr(-15); 0-tr(-50); TyA -, tr-21; 20-50
Microscopic characters: Marginal hyphae 1.5-5.5 µm diam, thin walled, nodose septate, moderately branched, often branches arising 10-15 µm below septa. Submerged hyphae 1.5-5(-7) µm diam, thin walled but wider hyphae slightly thick walled, nodose septate, moderately to frequently branched. Aerial hyphae similar to submerged hyphae except lightly encrusted with coarse, hyaline crystals, by 6 wk some containing dark yellow materials.
Sexuality: Tetrapolar (Boidin & Lanquetin 1965, p. 6 as Plicatura faginea (Schrad.) P. Karst.).
Cultural description: Boidin (1958a, p. 174).
Species code: (1). 2. 3c. 7. (16). 32. 36. (37). 38. 44-47.50.54. (55). 60.
Remarks: Plicaturopsis crispa is associated with a white rot (Gilbertson & Lombard 1976) of angiospermous and rarely gymnospermous, wood and branches in northern U. S. A. and throughout Canada (Reid 1964; Conners 1967; Gilbertson & Lombard 1976; Ginns 1986a). This species is similar to Plicatura nivea in culture.
