We describe some (countably many) classes K^{n,e} of finite graphs and prove that if lambda^{aleph_0}= lambda then every lambda^+-chromatic graph of cardinal lambda^+ contains, for some n, e, all members of K^{n,e} as subgraphs. On the other hand, it is consistent for every regular infinite cardinal kappa that there is a kappa^+-chromatic graph on kappa^+ that contains finite subgraphs only from K^{n,e} .
