This photomicrograph depicted a chain of conidia exhibited by a Alternaria sp. fungus. The spores of Alternaria sp. fungi are multicellular, pigmented, and are produced in straight chains, or branching chains, like those depicted here. The end of the conidium nearest the conidiophore is rounded, and tapers towards its apex, imparting a beak-like appearance.
