SUMMARY Mycotypha africana and four strains of were studied. The former displayed total conversion from mycelium (M) to yeast (Y) when grown under N or in the presence of some electron-transport inhibitors with either glucose, fructose or mannose as carbon source. In air, mixed filamentous and yeast-like forms were frequently observed. Acid pH, high temperature, dense inoculum and high hexose level increased the proportion of the Y-form. Yeast and mycelial phases were interconvertible. All but one strains of tested displayed similar dimorphism, but strain to strain variations were observed.
