Under a magnification of 970X, this photomicrograph revealed ultrastructural details exhibited by a fruiting body of the fungus, Aspergillus versicolor, which was located at the end of a smooth, filamentous conidiophore. Morphologically, the fruiting body resides atop a slender conidiophore that ends in a bulbous vesicle, which gives rise to biseriate metulae, that are topped with small phialides, which in turn give rise to the spherical conidia.
