A morphogenic substance derived from the nematode Panagrellus redivivus elicited differing degrees of sensitivity in four species of the hyphomycete Dactylella, yet all the species tested responded to the presence of a single live nematode. Each predaceous fungus apparently has a different reactive threshold to the morphogenic complex. It is postulated that the morphogenic substance designated Endogenous Nemin (EN) is similar to the organizers of vertebrate embryos.
