Abstract:
Species in the genus Armillaria are Basidiomycete, white-rot fungi. A study was done to determine the speciation of southern Arizona field collections. A number of isolates were positively or tentatively identified as belonging to Armillaria intersterility groups I, III, IV, or X. Some isolates had negative mating reactions with all intersterility group testers. Temperature - growth rate studies were done, and other cultural characteristics described. Additional areas of research on the species of Armillaria in southern Arizona were suggested.
