Abstract

The genus Meliola contains about 1,000 species of epiphyllic plant parasitic fungi that produce mycelia with characteristic capitate and mucronate hyphopodia. Growth of these fungi in culture or as artifical inoculations on leaves has never been reported. This paper presents some observations on the morphology of the fungus as seen with the scanning electron microscope (SEM), and some results obtained in culture studies.
