Studies on the fungal diseases in crustaceans. I. Lagenidium scyllae sp. nov. isolated from cultivated ova and larvae of the mangrove crab (Scylla serrata)
MetadataShow full item record
Lagenidium scyllae , a marine mastigomycete from the ova and larvae of the mangrove crab, is described and illustrated as new. The fungus grew at a temperature range of 16-42 C, with an optimum at 22.5-31.8 C. It grew well in peptone-yeast-glucose (PYG) broth containing 2-3% NaCl. In PYG-sea water medium, it grew at a pH range of 5-11.
