Lentodium squamulosum has been shown to be tetrapolarly heterothallic. The 4 predicted mating reactions can be recognized by gross characters on Potato dextrose agar, but not on other media tested. Three sectors were found, 2 of which do not seem to dikaryotize with any of the 4 established mating types. Malt extract would appear to yield more consistent fruiting than Oat flake agar.
