Abstract

IN 1928 Nadson and. Krassilnikov1 described a yeast isolated from the exudate of oaks in Kalouga, U.S.S.R. According to the original description, the yeast formed true mycelium as well as budding cells. Its asci contained four falcate spores. Nadson and Krassilnikov further stated that the ascospores appeared to have a double membrane, the latter being visible as two colourless appendages at the extremities of the spores (Fig. 1). On account of the characteristic ascospore shape the authors erected a new genus for this yeast and named it Guillier-mondella selenospora.
