Syncephalis hypogena, a new species isolated from soil collected in southern California is described from cultures on Mortierella bisporalis. Salient features of its vegetative development and reproduction, both sexual and asexual, are illustrated with photographs and line drawings. The species is distinguished from all other members of the genus in typically producing merosporangia from the lower rather than the upper hemisphere of the terminal ampulla of the sporangiophore.
