Description:Grammothele subargentea (Speg. ) Rajch. =Poria subargentea Speg. (LPS !). LYAD 2167 G, la Lézarde forest, Fougeres Forest House, on bamboo, 30. IX. 76; LYAD 2182 G, la Lézarde forest, 30. IX. 76; LYAD 2197 and 2199 G, Grosse Montagne, Deux Mamelles route, 4. X. 76; LYAD 2210 G, Deux Mamelles route, Morne Leger, 6. IX. 76; LYAD s. n. M, Fort de France.
Rajchenberg (1983 b) described the cultural characters of this species. Thus we present only polarity and nuclear behavior data.
SPORES AND GERMINATION: spores are uninucleate and germinate in 1-2 days after shedding, forming mycelia with uninucleate simple-septate articles.
SEXUALITY: tetrapolar (observation made from LYAD 2182) : A1Bl: 1-6-9 A2 B2: 7-10
A1 B2: 2-8 A2 B1: 3-4-8
POLYSPERM: cultures LYAD 2182 and. LYAD 2197 developed identical macro and microscopic features as described previously from Argentine cultures (BAFC 2476 and BAFC 542, Rajchenberg, op. cit. ).
Cytology: articles of polyspermic mycelium are binucleate. Oxidases: guaiacol 0,02%: +++++. 6 em p-crésol: -
0,2 %: ++++ tyrosine: - gallic ac. : +++++
NUCLEAR BEHAVIOR: normal.
CODE: 2a. 3c. 8. 11. (21). 35. 36. 37. 39. 40. 42. 50. 54. 60. 61.
REMARKS: Buller tests between monosperms from the Argentine BAFC 2476 2-5-6-10 cultures and the polysperm from the French Antilles LYAD 2182 were positive.
