Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Fruiting structure (sporangium) of the common bread mould Rhizopus stolonifer. Black bread mould (Rhizopus stolonifer) is a widely distributed filamentous mucoralean mould. Commonly found on bread surfaces, it utilizes food and nutrients from the bread and causes food spoilage to the surface where it lives. Asexual spores are formed within pinhead-like sporangia, which break to release the spores when mature. Magnification: x360 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
