The hyphal cross-walls in Endomycopsis platypodis had dolipores and, depending on the conditions of growth, dolipores were sometimes present in the walls between budding cells also. The formation of walls, both in hyphae and between budding cells, was initiated by an electron-light primary wall. This was later thickened at both sides with electron-dense material, and the dolipore exhibited an extra swelling around the pore channel. Buds separated from their parents at the primary wall, which remained attached to the mother cell.
