Description: Caption:
Under a magnification of 475X, this photomicrograph revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology exhibited by the fungal organism, Aspergillus versicolor. Note the fruiting bodies, or conidial heads, which were located at the ends of the organism’s smooth, filamentous hyaline conidiophores. The conidial head is composed of a bulbous vesicle, which gives rise to biseriate metulae that are topped with small phialides. The phialides give rise to the spherical conidia, that grow as strands, or chains of reproductive cells.
