ID#: 15473
This Petri dish culture plate contained an unknown growth medium, upon which grew a single colony of the dermatophytic fungal organism, Microsporum canis. This was an atypical strain, for while M. canis usually gives rise to colonies that are cottony, or wooly in texture, this strain gave rise to a glabrous colonial morphology. See PHIL 15472, for a microscopic view of the M. canis microorganism, and 15474, for a view of a typical wooly textured morphology.
