Morphological variation ofStromatella monostromatica
- 81 Downloads
Thirty two isolates ofStromatella monostromatica (Dangeard) Kornmann were studied in unialgal culture; extensive morphological variation was documented. The shape of bicellular germlings and development of young plants were similar for all isolates which had globular sporangia. These features are, therefore, the most important diagnostic characteristics of the species. The widespread distribution ofS. monostromatica suggests that this is a cosmopolitan species.
