A spontaneous mutant ofP. anserina isolated by screening for benomyl resistance exhibited a diurnal growth rhythm dependent on light-dark cycles. The rhythmic character, the benomyl resistance and a growth rate reduced to 50% of that of the wild type were inherited together over more than 10 generations. The locus was mapped on linkage group II, 0.35 map units distal to the locusz (=0.81 map units from the centromere).
