Are Deuteromycetes Universally Amylolytic?

They shouldn't be *universally* amylolytic, but there should be many that
do as you describe. What species have you tried?
By the way, if they're making iodine-stainable zones in "plain Agar",
presumably meaning just plates poured with agar autoclaved in tapwater or
distilled water, that might mean that they are *manufacturing* and
*excreting* amyloid or dextrinoid material into the medium, not degrading
What color does iodine stain a water-agar plate? What else does iodine
