Description:Under a relatively-high magnification of 1125X, this photomicrograph revealed the presence of a conidiophore from which numbers of conidia had developed.
These conidia develope asexually, therefore, these spores are sometimes labeled as “mitospores”, for they are born out of the process of mitosis, and are therefore, chromosomally haploid when they reach maturity. Lacking a known sexual state, this fungus is classified as a member of the group Deuteromycota, or Imperfect Fungi. It is also characterized as a dark-walled, or dematiaceous fungal organism.
