Under a magnification of 970X, this photomicrograph of a lactophenol blue-stained specimen, revealed ultrastructural morphology exhibited by a Syncephalastrum sp. fungal organism. In this view, you can see the nonseptate, filamentous hyphae, indicating its young age, and a very short sporangiophore projecting perpendicularly from the hypha. The sporangiophore was topped by a vesicle, from which immature merosporangia were projecting, which when mature, would give rise to reproductive spores. See PHIL 22832, for a view of a more mature sporangium, and its cache of maturing reproductive spores.
