The presence of cells with lignified walls on these bundles at ripeness, associated with the spongy tissue--mechanically more fragile at this region--and the invagination--occurred in early stages among lateral bundles--caused the separation of the mericarps, remaining the carpophore in the fruit axial region (Figure 4C).
Serjania, Lophostigma and Houssayanthus present schizocarpic fruit with a carpophore (ACEVEDO-RODRIGUEZ, 1993).
Aspicarpa steinmannii is immediately shown to belong in the Aspicarpa/ Gaudichaudia complex by the following characters: leaves eglandular except for the tiny tail-like marginal outgrowths near the base of the lamina of some leaves; stamens five, opposite sepals; gynoecium with a single style, the stigma terminal and capitate; samaras with well-developed lateral wings; each samara attached to the receptacle by a cartilaginous carpophore. The fact that the mericarps are winged and borne on carpophores is the sole basis one could find for assigning the species to Gaudichaudia rather than Aspicarpa.
Nwanze PI, Khan AU, Ameh, JB, Umoh, VJ (2005b) The effect of spawn grains, cultu re media, oil types and rates on carpophore production of Lentinus squat'rosulus (Mont.) Singer.

A principal components analysis (PCA) was done with the quantitative variables of the surface horizons studied, in order to synthesise the variation patterns in those elements that are potentially associated with the production of Tuber melanosporum carpophores and to quantify the overall impact of the surface horizons on carpophore production in this fungus.
Up to 80,000 spectators at a time would throng to the Colosseum to see greats such as Carpophores -- who reportedly defeated a bear, lion, leopard and rhinoceros in one battle -- or cheer on sea battles held in the flooded arena.
The carpophores, ascospores and mycorrhizas were identified with a stereoscopic microscope (Leica WildMZ8) and a microscope (Leica LeitzDMRB) following the descriptions and recommendations proposed by Agerer (1987-2002), Montecchi and Sarasini (2000) and Riousset et al.
Their vegetative system is barely visible, but if conditions are appropriate, they occasionally develop a well-formed fruiting body (mushrooms, toadstools, or carpophores), although the commonly designated stump mushrooms are annual or even perennial.
By contrast, Myodocarpus has dry, schizocarpic fruits with free carpophores, reminiscent of many Apioideae.
Field studies have shown that carpophores of ectomycorrhizal fungi are able to accumulate heavy metals in high concentrations, when these fungi are present in metal polluted sites (Ernst, 1985).
