Abstract Heaping up of filaments (tumulation) preceded in most cases by a retraction of filaments (retrofilation) was observed in strains of Herpetosiphon spp. A correlation is suggested between the occurrence of the phenomena and the presence of free moisture on the surface of agar media. No evidence of structures resembling the myxospores of fruiting myxobacteria was found. Tumulations were found to consist of normal ensheathed filaments, some larger tumulations being hollow.
