Discharge papilla development in the phycomycete Allomyces


The process of discharge papilla (DP) formation in Allomyces macrogynus was studied by light and electron microscopy. The plug of the DP was first deposited between the plasmalemma and the wall of the zoosporangium (ZS). The wall above the plug subsequently was eroded away.
