Reproductive systems of the myxomycetes Comatricha laxa and Lamproderma arcyrionema
Four cultures of the myxomycete Comatricha laxa were isolated from woody cactus detritus collected in Arizona. All four isolates were heterothallic and belonged to a single biological species. However, three of the isolates produced myxamoebal clones which were all of the same mating type, thus displaying a modified heterothallic system in which the diploid plasmodia segregate out only a single mating type in their spores. A single isolate of Lamproderma arcyrionema was also cultured, for the first time, and found to be nonheterothallic.
