Article

Summary

In 1949 I discovered a yeast like fungus which was termedBlastomyces cerolytica. During the essay for exact determination of this fungus, it was found that it resemblesCoccidioides. Its yeast-like form is zymatic, malto-saccharasic. As organs of fructification aleurospores and chlamydospores were found, as well as asci containing hundreds af ascospores. It shows isogame heterothallism. It belongs to Taphrinales. A comparison between characteristics ofCoccidioides immitis andBlastomyces cerolytica is given. The diagnosis of this fungus concludes the investigation.

Resumé

En 1949 nous avons découvert un champignon levuriforme, lequel nous avons nomméBlastomyces cerolytique. Il nous a paru d'être très semblable au genreCoccidioides. Son état levuriforme se comporte comme une levure zymatique et malto-saccharasique. Les formes asexuelles sont des aleurospores et des chlamydospores et les formes sexuelles des asques géants remplis de centaines d'ascospores. Il paraît être isogame hétérothallique. Il appartient à des Taphrinales. Une comparaison était mise en vue des caractéristiques deCoccidioides immitis et deBlastomyces cerolytique. Nous donnons aussi une diagnose pour ce champignon.
