Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Hyphae and fruiting structures, or conidiophores (Pithomyces sp.). Pithomyces sp. is a soil fungus producing mycelia colonies that are fast growing (dark grey to black). Multiple conidia (spores) are produced in the conidiophores. The genus Pithomyces contains 15 species commonly found on litter and soil. One species, Pithomyces chartarum, is often involved with facial eczema of sheep. Human mycosis and dermatomycosis include: allergic reactions, skin and lung irritations or infections, hypersensitivity pneumonitis and dermatitis. Magnification: x400 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
