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 a typical strain, which gave rise to a wooly textured colony. See PHIL 15472, for a microscopic view of the M. canis microorganism, and 15473, for a view of an atypical variant, which exhibited a glabrous, smooth colonial morphology.
