Melanin-deficient mutants (45) were studied in complementation tests and in tests for exogenous precursors of melanin biosynthesis. Complementation maps for some genes have been established. Not all the mutants proved capable of utilizing the exogenous scytalone. Also, microsclerotia of olim mutants were shown to be lacking the oxidase activity.
