Caption: Penicillium fungus. Stereo light micrograph of the structure of a Penicillium sp. fungus growing on a butternut squash. The main body of the fungus is composed of microscopic filaments (hyphae, white) which spread over the surface of the host, forming a mycelium. The reproductive spores (green/grey) are produced on branching, tree-like structures known as conidiophores. The conidiophores are formed at the ends of the hyphae. This fungus infects harvested fruits and vegetables, penetrating the surface of its host and digesting and absorbing nutrients from its tissues. Magnification: x3.3 at 35mm.
