Notes on Lagenidium from larvae of Penaeus monodon Fabricius. I. Isolation and culture in artificial media.
MetadataShow full item record
The fungus, tentatively identified as Lagenidium , which attacks the nauplii to postlarval stages of P. monodon , has recently been isolated and cultured from infected larvae under laboratory conditions, using several kinds of agars and broths. Growth of the colonies was found to be faster in the broths and in the Sabouraud agar ghan in the othr media. Observations were made on the variations in sizes of the vegetative and reproductive structures and on the manner of sporulation to form the basis of identification.
