Fungi, on strawberry collected from Ooty. Under 25X magnification.
Thank you very much cbenito. There could have been Gray strawberry mold in this one, but I couldn't identify it.
I think it's gray strawberry mold. Really cool shots of the mold under the microscope!
Hi Mark, when I searched for the possible molds which could grow on strawberries, I came across Botrytis cinerea. But when I looked through the microscope I couldn't find any conidiophores. So I thought, I will keep it for one more day and see again. Thank you very much for the suggestion :)
Hi Namitha. I would look at the 'Gray Strawberry mold for this one. Botrytis cinerea It is famous for attacking strawberries. The Rhizopus I have found have long sporangiophore and gold or black sporangium that are all clearly visible to the naked eye. They look almost exactly like Spinella sp. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/119...
