Abstract

SUMMARY: The arrangement of cellular organelles within the zoospores of and was found to be very similar to that observed in the zoospores of Monoblepharella (Monoblepharidales). Principal among these differences are the presence in Allomyces of a distinct nuclear cap, a set of 27 microtubules, a nucleus adjacent to the kinetosome, and the side body which includes the here-named Stüben bodies. Certain previous observations, including the reported absence of microtubules, of the ultrastructure of the zoospore of Allomyces have been corrected or amended.
