The development of sclerotia, structure and microconidia of Sclerotinia Sclerotiorum are described.

Sclerotial initials are formed by hyphal strands which branched dichotomously to give a small knot and bound the hyphae together and then became solid masses which were spherical to irregular in shape.

The mature sclerotium are blackand consists of three distinct regions, the outermost layer is a rind, within the rind is a cortex and the centre of the sclerotium is a medulla.

Microconidia are readily produced in cultures of the fungus but no evidence was found of microconidial clusters forming within the sclerotium.
