Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Filamentous fungus (Fusarium sp.) - hyphae and asexual reproductive stage. Specialized spores are produced at the ends of filamentous hyphae branches. Fusarium spp. are common plant pathogens and are causative agents of superficial and systemic infections in humans. Infections caused by Fusarium spp. are collectively referred to as fusariosis. This fungus is the most common cause of mycotic keratitis. The most virulent Fusarium spp. is Fusarium solani . Fusarium produces very harmful toxins, especially in storage of infected crops. Fusarium moniliforme produces mycotoxins called fumonisins. Eating grains contaminated with these toxins may give rise to allergic symptoms or be carcinogenic in long-term consumption. Magnification: x500 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
