Hyphae with Arthroconidia

Slide 7

January 2012

This is an example of hyphae with arthroconidia. On the lower left hand side about 7 o'clock, you will notice that the hyphae are beginning to break down into spores that are kind of rectangular almost like a rounded ends on them. Those are arthroconidia. And that is the simplest mode again of the reproduction for the fungi. Each one of those will break apart and germinate and form an entirely different organism. So we see arthroconidia forming with almost any of the fungi. They are not specific for any particular organism at least in this format.
