The ascospore appendage morphology of thirty-one lignicolous marine fungi has been studied with particular reference to their mode of attachment to surfaces. Ten different spore appendage forms are recognized and are described and illustrated with scanning electron micrographs. They include: I. Release of a drop of mucilage from polar end chambers. II. Hamate or cap-like appendages which uncoil to form viscous threads. III. Spores with a sticky mucilaginous sheath. IV. Disc or pad-like… Expand
