Allomorph – smooth walled conidiophores extend between 300 µm – 700 µm in length and are between 7 µm – 12 µm in width. Vesicles are globose (spherical) to subglobose (subspherical) to pyriform (tear-drop) in shape and roughly 18-30 µm in diameter. A.glaucus is uniseriate with phialides 7 – 11 µm to 3 – 7 µm in size and generally covers most of the vesicle. The conidia (4 µm to 8 µm diameter) are spherical to ellipsoidal in shape and are echinulate to spinose (finely roughened/fine spines).
With the petrie dish under a stereoscopic dissecting microscope, the fruiting structures were both visible and distinguishable. The Aspergillus conidiophores stood erect like trees in a forest, with the conidia appearing a pale sage green in colour. The cleistothecia were interspersed and about the same size in total diameter but they appeared yellowish-brown in colour. A really beautiful sight viewed between 16X to 40X magnification!
