Abstract

SUMMARY: Three out of five methods currently employed in the isolation of lower marine fungi have been effective in the isolation of from the marine environment. Isolation attempts from locations on the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf of Mexico Coasts (U.S.A.) indicate that is ubiquitous, occurring in nature either attached to algal filaments or free- floating. Its incidence in the eulittoral and intertidal zones is highest between 14 and 20°. There is no correlation between incidence and the salinities commonly encountered in sea water and numerous attempts at isolation from fresh water have been unsuccessful. It is preferentially attached to algal filaments but exhibits no specificity with regard to particular algae.
