February 2012

This is Coccidioides. These are colonies of Coccidioides except for the one on the left-hand side about 9 o’clock that is bright white. All of the other colonies are Coccidioides immitis on a culture plate. They came from a contaminated specimen and cycloheximide allowed those colonies that were slower growing to be able to grow with out being inhibited by a rapidly growing mold.
