Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Aspergillus fumigatus conidia (spores). A. fumigatus is a saprophytic fungus and is the main cause of the human disease, aspergillosis (allergic aspergillosis or respiratory infection). This fungus is common in dust, soil, on plants and plant products such as hay or grain. It is also an important agent of systemic mycosis in domestic animals and in humans, especially the immunocompromised. Aspergillus fumigatus has also been reported to cause allergies, asthma, and rhinitis. This fungus produces a large number of mycotoxins and tremorgenic metabolites. It is also known to cause Stonebrood in honeybees and is classified as one of the diseases of the honeybee. Magnification: x1,200 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
