Abstract

SUMMARY: Variation in phenotypic properties was examined in three strains of closely related fasciculate species of using 114 morphological, physiological, and biochemical characters. Thirty-six of these characters showed variation within single-conidium isolates of the same strain. Conidial sizes and nuclear DNA contents were compared using flow microfluorimetry; these results suggested that significant differences in conidial DNA content are associated with phenotypic variation. The taxonomic significance of the results is discussed.
