Life-cycle and physiological description of the yeast-form of the homobasidiomyceteAsterophora lycoperdoides (Bull.: Fr.) Ditm.

  • Bernhard Koller
  • Hermann J. Jahrmann


The life-cycle and taxonomically important properties of the yeast-form ofAsterophora lycoperdoides (Nyctalis asterophora Fr.) were investigated. This yeast resembles representatives of some genera of basidiomycetous and imperfect yeasts, especially with respect to some biochemical characteristics.
