Explanted premeiotic sporocytes of field-collected plants of the liverwort S. texanus Aust. were cultured on defined medium in depression slides. The sporocytes underwent meiosis and early stages of spore wall formation. These results indicate that this liverwort may be useful in biochemical studies of meiosis.
