Briefly, conidia and sporangiospores were collected by rubbing sterile polyester-tipped applicators over the mycelium, which were then transferred to a collection tube, washed in 1 mL PCR-grade water, and centrifuged for 1 minute at 10 000g to collect the spores.
While the chemical nature of Pilobolus sporangiospore cell walls has not been reported, it is widely assumed that, as with other zygomycetes, they are comprised of some combination of chitin and/or chitosan.
A total number of 271 nasal masses were collected, in that 48 (18%) were diagnosed as rhinosporidiosis based on H and E staining which were characterised by presence of large, thick-walled spherical structures called 'sporangia' containing smaller 'sporangiospores' [Figure 1].

Caption: Figure 3: Light microscopy of lactophenol cotton blue slide preparations made of culture colonies revealed round sporangia containing spherical sporangiospores similar to those of P.
The maximum severity on leaves was around 75% and severity over it induced defoliation with most of the leaves covered by the fungus reproductive structures of sporangiospores.
Organisms Type of Microscopic morphology organisms Presence of septate hyphae, long and Aspergillus Filamentous smooth conidiophores, and long niger mold unbranded sporangiospores with large, round head.
A water suspension containing fresh sporangiospores of KY79 (105 sporangiospores/mL) was used for challenge inoculations by drop inoculation as described earlier [1].
These can be differentiated on the basis of their sporangiospores morphology and the growth at different temperatures (5).
Sporangiospores from these fungal isolates were used as the source of DNA.
