Caption: False-colour scanning electron micrograph of the porous underside of the basidiocarp (fruiting body) of the bracket fungus Coriolus versicolor. Several pores are seen in this image; the small, spherical objects visible in the bottom of each pore (green) are ripening spores. Although it has a distinctive and complex shape, the basidiocarp is not composed of differentiated tissues, but is merely a tangled mass of hyphae (vegetative strands). C. versicolor is commonly found in deciduous woodlands, growing on dead wood. The basidiocarp is the large, flat, shelf-like structure which gives the fungus its common name. Magnification: x85 at 6x4.5cm size.
