ABSTRACT

Achlya megasperma sporulated best s.t 30°C and at pH 7.0 to 9.0. Light had no effect on forration of the sporangia. Certain concentrations of CaCl-,., ^ulcitol. Mg SO^^H^O, Malt extract, neptone and Yeast extract enhanced sporangial formation. The mineral salts, CuS04 .5H20, FeCljs MnS04 .4H20 and Zn Cl2 depressed sporangial formation. Gemmae were produced in great quantities in solutions of 0.1, 0.2 and 0,4 per cent haemoglobin and 1x0 ^ and 0_5M Zn Cl^. Sporangial formation was also inhibited by the carbohydrates, Fructose, Galactose, Glucose, Lactose and Mannose, the polyhydrol alcohols Glycerol and Mannitol and, by Potato dextrose broth. Vegetative growth was, however, greatly improved by Potato dextrose broth, Fructose, Glucose, Mannose, Malt extract, Peptone and Yeast extract, and there was considerable hyphal branching in solutions of Fructose Glucose, Malt extract,Peptone and Yeast extract and in Potato dextrose broth. In the mineral salt solutions the range of concentration permitting sporangial formation was narrower than that Supporting vegetative growth.
