Caption: Magnified 100x, this photomicrograph depicted a number of Penicillium frequentans, also referred to as Penicillium glabrum, fungal conidiophores. The fungal conidiophore is a stalked structure, the distal end of which produces the asexual spores, known as conidia, through a process of budding. Note the conidia arranged as chains extending from structures known as sterigma, at the end of these conidiophores.
