Description: Caption:
This Petri dish culture plate contained an unknown growth medium that had been inoculated with a culture of Aspergillus alliaceus fungal organisms, and was incubated for a 16-day period. The small black balls were Aspergillus alliaceus sclerotia, which are compacted spheroid-shaped entanglements of filamentous mycelia that act as food reserves, enabling the organism to endure difficult environmental conditions.
