The identity of the lipstick mold of cultivated mushrooms agaricus bisporus



Botanical Bulletin of Academia Sinica 32(1): 57-62



Lipstick mould or red geotrichum, as it is commonly known among mushroom growers, is a competitive weed mould of Agaricus bisporus. In literature lipstick mould is associated with either Geotrichum sp., G. candidum, Sporendonema sp. or S. purpurascens. Certain authors regard the two genera as synonyms. Studies of spore ontogeny by means of light and electron microscopy showed clear distinctions between Geotrichum spp. and Sporendonema spp. Conidia of Sporendonema spp. are formed entero-arthrically, whereas Geotrichum spp. form exo-arthric conidia. Isolates of the lipstick mould were positively identified as Sporendonema purpurascens.
