In Mortierella (Coemans), which has a smooth extine, this outgrowth arises from the hyphas bearing the suspensors (as well as from the suspensors in one case), and forms a compact integument of the zygosperm. In M. nigrescens (^'an Tiegh.) this outgrowth begins after conjugation, first from the suspensors, then from the adjoining hyphse; while in M. Rostafinskii (Bref) the outgrowth.
