Bar = 2 mm bâd Sporocarps of various stages and sizes after drying. Bars = 0.5 mm e Sporocarp as seen under the light microscope. Note the swollen pigmented base with surrounding large globose cells and the long tubular neck with a widening tip. Bar = 200 Î¼m f Tip of the neck with spore mass exiting the sporocarp. Bar = 25 Î¼m g Ostiolar hyphae at the tip of the neck. Bar = 10 Î¼m h Outer surface of the neck, wide hyphae are visible, septa are marked with arrows. Bar = 10 Î¼m i Globose cells (marked with asterisk) surrounding the base of the sporocarp. Bar = 25 Î¼m j Multicellular spores produced inside the sporocarps. Note the four-celled spores on the left breaking into smaller compartments. Bar = 10 Î¼m.
