Description: Caption:
Under a magnification of 475X, this photomicrograph revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology exhibited by the fungal organism, Penicillium sclerotiorum. In this particular view, a sclerotic body was highlighted. Sclerotic bodies are structures that act as mechanisms of regeneration composed of a hard, environmentally resistant mass of heterogeneous fungal tissues that are able, under favorable conditions, to germinate a new fungal colony. For a closer view of a P. sclerotiorum colony’s sclerotia, see PHIL 8395, and 19038.
