Yeasts occurring on wheat seeds. II. A taxonomic study of strains of Cryptococcus laurentii (Kuff.) Skinner var. magnus Lodder et Kreger-van Rij and C. albidus (Saito) Skinner var. albidus

Zofia Maciejowska-Pokacka


Morphology and physiology of strains of Cryptococcus laurentii var. magnus and C. albidus var. albidus isolated from winter wheat seeds was studied. It was concluded on the basis of morphological similarity that these fungi were closely related. Resting spores of a "dangeardien'' type were found in C. laurentii, while in some cultures of C. albidus unusually large resting spores were dis00vered.
