Abstract

Thirty isolates of Armillaria heimii from western eastern and southern Africa were cultured for fruit body production in the laboratory. Most isolates fruited easily. Investigation of single-spore progenies revealed that all the isolates do not have the same sexual behaviour: some are heterothallic and unifactorial while others are homothallic. Two African isolates belonging to the species Armillaria mellea also appeared homothallic behavior has been reportedly only in a rare European species Armillaria ectypa and in the Japanese subspecies Armillaria mellea ssp. nipponica.
