This Petri dish culture plate contained Sabouraud dextrose agar, upon which a colony of Hortaea werneckii fungal organisms, had been cultivated. Colonies of the fungus H. werneckii are slow growing, initially mucoid, yeast-like, and shiny black at maturity. This fungus is the causative agent of tinea nigra, a superficial skin infection affecting the stratum corneum in humans.
