Description:Under a magnification of 900X, this photomicrograph revealed some of the ultrastructural features displayed by a Verticillium sp. fungus, specifically a single septate conidiophore, which had sprouted wheals of philiades topped by clusters of conidia, or spores.
Note the septate hyaline conidiophore, and the conidia, which measure between 2-13┬Ám in length, arranged in clusters, but which can be solitary as well (see PHIL 15532). This species of fungus has been implicated as a cause of keratitis in humans.
