Moreover, the dimensions of sporangiophores ranged significantly within and between races (Table 1).
The organism was presumptively identified as Rhizopus species based on the morphology of sporangiophore and sporangia.
There was thus no relationship between morphology of zoosporangia and sporangiophores and virulent characteristics for isolates identified in this study (Tables 2 and 4).
Sporangial morphology was examined under a compound microscope and the shape, size, presence or absence of papilla, proliferations and sporangiophore branching recorded.
After 13 days of infection of the sunflower inbred line 'FU', the zoosporangia and sporangiophores suspensions for 20 single zoosporangium isolates were obtained by grouping all sporulated cotyledons in a small container and adding 1 ml of physiological water for each cotyledon (9g NaCl+1L sterilized water).
The sporangiophores or stalks may be lacking and a lamina or leafy component may or may not be present.
