This depicts a frontal view of a Petri dish culture plate that contained a growth medium of Sabouraud dextrose agar (SDA), which had been inoculated with the fungal organism Sporothrix schenckii, strain M-36-53. This wrinkled colony displayed a characteristically leathery, moist appearance. Its coloration ranged from beige-yellow at its periphery, to a darker, brownish-purple in its more central, older areas. S. schenckii is the causal agent of the fungal disease sporotrichosis.
