In addition to the previous way, the aerial hypha differentiates into conidiophores and immature vesicle which subsequently produce one or more additional conidiophores and vesicles before starting in actual sporulation process.
Conidiophores showed close packed sterigmata parallel to the longer axis and bottle-shaped heads, which justify the identification as Aspergillus fumigatus.
Colonies effuse, sporodochia pulvinate with brown stromatic base, bearing hyaline conidiophores and golden yellow slimy conidial mass, encircled by curved dark brown setae.
Conidiophores are 90-100 x 3-4 [micro]m in size and bear conidia singly at the tips.
This is a good choice for microscopic inspection of the particles but may kill the identified hyphae and conidiophores [62].
Entomophaga grylli conidia were obtained from infected grasshopper cadavers collected from Charlo, MT in July Cadavers were stored in individual petri dishes and soaked with deionized water until conidiophores developed (MacLeod & Muller-Kogler 1973).
(23) All the lesions displayed cytologic evidence of aspergillosis, confirmed by the presence of branching, septate hyphae, conidiophores, and spores, and were positive for Aspergillus species on culture.
The fungal isolates were identified based on their cultural characteristics and the structure of their conidiophores in microscopy using Lactophenol cotton blue staining technique.
Conidia and conidiophores were measured using an Olympus OSM-4 10x/13 ocular micrometer lens coupled to the microscope.
