  • This paper may be regarded as an addendum to previous work along the same lines, more particularly the work which dealt with some 700 of the larger Basidiomycetes. Both Ascomycetes and Basidiomycetes were tested for their antibiotic properties by means of sporophore extract. Of the ninety-nine fungi tested, twenty-eight showed a positive and seventy-one a negative reaction against the test bacteria, Bacterium coli and Staphylococcus aureus.
