Mouldy parsnip. Close-up of mould (Rhizopus sp.) growing on a parsnip. The parsnip has become overgrown with fungal mycelium, a network of branching hyphae (thin threads). Some of the hyphae bear fruiting bodies, or sporangia (black dots), the reproductive part of the fungi that contain spores, the reproductive cell.
