Common-AB diploids with several heterozygous biochemical markers were mated with appropriately marked haploid strains of S. commune in an effort to obtain compatible, common-A, and common-B diploid progeny with biochemical markers identical to those of the common-AB parent. The spores from these crosses were germinated on minimal medium. Five compatible diploids, but no common-A or common-B diploids, marked as desired, were isolated by this method. Two possessed some dikaryotic cells and two had many dikaryotic cells. One of the latter was shown to have peculiar behaviour associated with one of its B mating-type factors.
