The somatic incompatibility in Agaricus bitorquis was studied using ten wild strains. Heterokaryons from each isolate were all paired with the same unrelated heterokaryon and also paired together in all combinations. Two different types of somatic incompatible interaction were observed lightly or heavily pigmented lines developing between the two isolates. In addition to, some elements and photographs of hyphae were determined by means of scanning electron microscopy.
Key words: Agaricus bitorquis, somatic incompatibility, elements.
