This chapter studies the genus Kriegeria. In asexual reproduction yeast cells are elongate and budding is predominantly polar. Buds frequently develop close to the base of the parent cell and elongate parallel to the parent cell. In sexual reproduction it is seen that Kriegeria is phytoparasitic and the sexual state develops only in the host plant. The parasite develops internally in Scirpus and Eriophorum leaves and produces elongate, yellow, gelatinous pustules of basidia in the abaxial leaf surface. This chapter further examines physiology, biochemistry, and phylogenetic placement. The type species mentioned is Kriegeria eriophori Bresadola. The systematic discussion of the species includes synonyms and anamorphs, growth on 5% malt extract agar, Dalmau plate culture on corn meal agar, fermentation, gene sequence accession numbers, cell carbohydrates, origin of the strains studied, type strain, systematics, ecology, biotechnology, and agriculture and food. © 2011
