Short Communications


The detection of chlamydospores of Schizophyllum commune in liquid medium is described. The short thick walled cells are formed by intercalary septation which leads also to modification of the septal complex. The chemical composition of the cell walls of chlamydospores is similar to the composition of the vegetative mycelium.
