Stromal pigments and taxonomy of Hypoxylon

  • 53 Accesses

  • 6 Citations

Abstract

Stromal pigments extracted with ethyl acetate from a variety of Hypoxylon species were examined by thin-layer chromatography and the results are discussed in relation to the taxonomy of the genus. Most species exhibited constant and characteristic pigment band patterns which in some cases proved to be useful in identification.
