Under a magnification of 970X, this photomicrograph revealed ultrastructural morphology exhibited by a Cunninghamella sp. fungal organism. In this view, you can see that the hyphae lacked septa, referred to as aseptate. Note that there were also three sporangiophores visible, each in a different stage of maturation. The sporangiophore left of center, was supporting a crop of globose sporangiola, each developing at the end of a spine-like denticle, projecting from the surface of the sporangiophore’s terminal vesicle.
