Abstract

Conidium ontogeny in the dematiaceous fungus, Cacumisporium capitulatum, was studied in culture. As the conidiophore matures, the heavy outer wall of the tapered conidiophore apex is broken and a hyaline meristematic area emerges. Conidia are produced from the hyaline meristematic region on successively produced growing points. The broken outer wall subtends the sporogenous area as a collarette. Previous interpretation of the conidiophores of C. capitulatum as a type of phialide is considered to be in error.
