SUMMARY: Pieces of the fruit body of attracted the migrating plasmodia of at a distance of 4 cm. Extracts of fruit bodies made with organic solvents could attract, but aqueous extracts could not. Cultured mycelium and extracts of cultured mycelium also attracted strongly, but activity was not detected in culture filtrate. Phase separation with organic and aqueous phases concentrated the attractive principle. Paper chromatography indicated the presence of a single substance of high activity which migrated in isopropanol-ammonia-water with an of 0.83 to 0.88 and in butanol-acetic acid-water with an close to 0.9. The active extracts from fruit bodies and cultured mycelium were thermostable. The attractant diffused through both aqueous and gaseous phases.
