Sclerotia of Sclerotinia minor were parasitized by Teratosperma oligocladum, a recently described dematiaceous hyphomycete. The mycoparasite was cultured on living sclerotia placed on water agar and on sclerotia in moist sand. It grew poorly on several common laboratory media but growth in vitro was enhanced by supplements of soil extract and, especially, by aqueous extracts of sclerotia. Sclerotia of S. minor, S. sclerotiorum, S. trifoliorum, Sclerotium cepivorum, and Botrytis cinerea were… CONTINUE READING
