This image depicted a Petri dish culture plate containing a growth medium of Sabouraud dextrose agar, which had been inoculated with the fungal organism from the genus, Syncephalastrum, strain A-423. The culture was incubated for an undisclosed period of time, and had given rise to this fungal colony. Syncephalastrum spp. produce white colonies, displaying morphology referred to as woolly, or cotton candy-like, as was the case here.
