The process of host colonization initiates after penetration, with the penetrating hyphae becoming thicker and ramify within the tegument and the hemocoel of the insect, forming blastospores

Transition from blastospores
to hyphae is an integral part of biofilm formation.
At the present time, use of conidia seems to be the best method for application of this fungus; the use of blastospores
produced in liquid culture requires further investigation to determine optimal conditions to develop infective and virulent propagules against D.

into invasive hyphae forms (Jackson et al.

Preparation, Deposition, and Viability
The other results together with the presence and distribution of blastospores
along the pseudomycelium allowed the classification as Candida tropicalis.
On microscopy, Candida hyphae or blastospores
can be seen.
Candida albicans is identified by observing thin-walled blastospores
and pseudohyphae in Pap smears.
albicans cells were present as blastospores
(yeast forms) attached to the surface of the disk, which appeared as a haze-like film covering the fungal microcolonies.
LCF has proven economical to use, yielding blastospores
or microsclerotia in 2-3 days versus 10-14 days for conidia using traditional solid-substrate culture methods, says Jackson.
