Abstract

The production of a precipitate by Malassezia species on Dixon's agar was observed. Malassezia furfur (n = 12), M. obtusa (n = 2) and M. slooffiae (n = 3) were precipitate negative, while M. sympodialis (n = 32) and M. globosa (n = 6) were precipitate positive. This test may be useful in differentiating Malassezia species.
