  • 6.  The organism showed a conversion into yeastlike cells analogous to the formation of arthrospores and oidia.
  • 7.  The ascus-like cells, stalagmospores or aleuriospores became converted into many yeastlike cells which seemed to indicate that they are most likely ascus-like structures, probably of a degenerate nature.
