Description: Caption:
Under a magnification of 20X, this teased, wet mount-prepared specimen, revealed some of the ultrastructural details exhibited by a group of cleistothecia from the saprophytic fugal organism, Pseudallescheria boydii, which is also known as Petriellidium boydii, and Allescheria boydii. A cleistothecium is a closed, fungal fruiting body, which acts as a container for developing asci, or the sexual, spore-bearing cells, produced in fungi from the phylum Ascomycota.
