Fungal Contamination on jaggery

Post by greatmicrobiologist » Thu Feb 02, 2012 12:43 pm

I have isolated a fungal contamination from jaggery and streaked on sabouraud dextrose agar plate. It was light chocolate brown in color on the jaggery.

I have stained the fungi with Lactophenol cotton blue and observed under 100X of Bright-field microscope.

I wanted to know the exact species name. I think the genus in Aspergillus. Suggestions required.

Do you really think that someone will be able to tell you exact name just from three pictures without any further info?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

It does appear to be an Aspergillus sp. Did you observe septate hyphae and can you describe the colony in more detail?
