Description: Caption:
This teased, wet mount-prepared specimen, revealed some of the ultrastructural details exhibited by two coremia produced by the saprophytic fugal organism, Pseudallescheria boydii, which was formerly known as Petriellidium boydii, and Allescheria boydii. The coremia represent the fruiting bodies of some fungal organisms, and consist of a loosely bound bundle of conidiophores, arranged in a manner analogous to stalks of wheat, and giving rise to the conidia, or spores, at their distal tips. See PHIL 15428, for a closer look at these fungal fruiting bodies.
