Conjugation in the dimorphic chromomycosis fungus Phialophora dermatitidis.

Abstract

Phase-contrast microscope observations of the dimorphic fungus Phialophora dermatitidis revealed that thick-walled yeasts often tended to form aggregates and then to conjugate. Fusions were also observed among hyphae derived from the thick-walled yeasts.
