Utilizing techniques which make possible the production of perithecia and ascospores of Claviceps purpurea (Fr.) Tul. in the laboratory ( 9), more detailed observations upon various phases of sclerotial and ascospore germination of this fungus have been made. The ergot bodies (sclerotia) used in these studies were collected from forty-one species of Iowa grasses. (Table I). Collections of C. pusilla Ces. were also made on three Andropogon species.
