The ascigerous state of Candida chodatii


In Candida chodatii, a mycelial yeast having denticulate conidiogenous cells, the asci are formed by conjugating budding cells (conidia) and usually contain 2 hat-shaped, small ascospores. It is classified in Hyphopichia, a new genus of the Ascoideaceae. A key to the genera of the Ascoideaceae is given.
