Under a magnification of 970X, this photomicrograph revealed some of the ultrastructural morphologic characteristics of a conidal head of the fungal organism, Aspergillus alliaceus. The conidial head tops the conidiophore, and is composed of fungal spores, or conidia, also known as mitospores, for they are born out of the process of mitosis, and are therefore, haploid when they reach maturity.
