Caption: Maize cob infected with corn smut. Maize (Zea mays) is also known as corn, hence the name of the diseases and pathogens associated with it. This maize cob has a corn earworm (Helicoverpa zea, upper left) feeding on it. The blue kernels are a corn smut infection, caused by the pathogenic fungus Ustilago maydis.
