Description:DESCRIPTION OF CULTURE
Growth characteristics : Growth slow, plates not covered in 6 weeks. Advancing zone even, hyaline, appressed or raised, aerial mycelium extended to the limit of growth. Mat white, cottony-floccose to wooly-floccose to floccose-felty or wooly-felty, with thin strands of mycelium raising along the wall of petri dish near inoculum. Reverse unchanged.
Oxidase reactions negative on both gallic acid and tannic acid agars, colony 4 cm in diameter on the former and 3.5 cm on the latter. Microscopic characteristics Advancing zone with hyphae hyaline, thin-walled, clamped, branched, often producin many short branches towards the distal ends, 1.5-5.0 µm wide (Fig.6). Aerial mycelium (a) hyphae as in the advancing zone; (b) fibre hyphae (Fig.7) hyaline, thick-walled to solid, branched and unbranched, 1.2-3.0 µm wide; (c)chlamydospores numerous, hyaline, thick-walled, smooth, terminal and intercalary, amyloid, cyanophilous, 7.5-12.0 x 3.5-8.0 µm (Fig.8).
SEXUALITY : The result of pairing of 20 monosporous cultures obtained from a fresh basidiocarp (VBMH 80703) shows the species to be bipolar with the following distribution of mating types among the basidiospores.
A1 : 1, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 15, 17, 18, 19; A2 : 2, 3, 4, 6, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 20.
SPECIES CODE : 1. 3. 8. 34. 36. 38. 47. 54. 59 (following the system of Nobles (1965).
CULTURES EXAMINED : VBMH 80701, 80702, 80703, 86706, and 89708.
