phi·a·lide

(fī'ă-līd),
In fungi, a conidiogenous cell in which the meristematic end remains unchanged as successive conidia are extruded out to form chains.
[G. phialē, a broad, flat vessel]

phialide

an open-ended, tubular or flask-like conidiophore that produces phialoconidia. Seen in Aspergillus and Penicillium spp.

Classification of the endophytes into taxons was based on phialide and conidia morphology, and growth in culture.
The spore, which was sitting so patiently and clean on the tip of a phialide in the middle of a pore, now sticks to a soil particle.

Morphological characterizations including mycelial color, colony texture and shape) and microscopic observations (conidia shape, conidia color, conidiophore--branching, phialide width and phialide length were determined according to Sharma and Singh 2014, Singh A, et al 2014.
7 FGCC/BLS 10 Chains of single-celled conidia are produced in basipetal succession from a specialisedconidiogenous cell called a phialide produced singly in groups orfrom branched metulae, giving a brush-like appearance (a Penicillus) 8 FGCC/BLS 11 Macro conidia are hyaline, two- to several-celled, fusiform- to sickle-shaped, mostly with an elongated apical cell and pedicellate basal cell.
Microscopic morphology of the colony showed conidiophores with single phialides covering approximately the entire vesicle which was compatible with that of Aspergillusflavus.
Furthermore, Pitt (1979) also mentioned, for Penicillium species branched or simple conidiophores, phialides, metulae and conidia are observed.
