This photomicrograph reveals some of the ultrastructural morphology exhibited by the fungal organism, Pyrenochaeta romeroi, including this deeply-pigmented structure known as a pycnidium, a fruiting body that contains conidia, serving the same function as a conidiophore. P. romeroi has been shown to be a cause of mycetoma.
