IN their researches on Bonnemaisonia asparagoides (Woodw.) C. Ag., J. Feldmann and G. Feldmann1 describe the germination of the carpospores. After showing amœboid movement, the spores become round and surrounded by a wall. The first division is equatorial and at right angles to the substratum. Other walls parallel to the first are formed, and subsequent divisions lead to the formation of a hemispherical cushion of cells from the edge of which radiating filaments ultimately develop.

Monospore release is effected mainly by an apical tear accompanied by momentary spore distortion, and sometimes with a distinct ‘blow-out’ of the sporangium apex; orientation of the paths of sporeExpand
