Not illustrated. 1879 edition. Excerpt: ..."Les zoospores issus de ces deux organes off rent une parfaite ressemblance. Seulemcnt ceux qui proviennent des sporanges filamenteux sont un peu plus grands que ceux qui s'echappent des sporanges ovoides. J'ai vu d'ailleurs germer les uns et les autres, ce qui prouve suffisament leur complete identitt "f--I determined in the present case to watch the development and escape of the spores. Those of the round utricle-like cells, which I took for Thuret's Oosporangia, ripened first. The colourless protoplasm, to use almost Braun's words, started not by a successive division, but by a simulta Thuret, " Recherches zur les zoospores des Algues," Annales des Sciences Naturelles, Troisieme Serie.

There could no longer be any doubt but that I was wrong in taking these unicellular forms for true fruits (Oosporangia) of the Ectocarpus, and there was just as little that I had a species of Chytridium living parasitic in and on its cells. A few days later, the Trichosporangial fruits also ripened, and their spores made their exit through small openings in the upper corner of each cell-wall, the whole mass more
