Abstract: The conidia produced by the mycelial form of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis were examined by scanning electron microscopy for the first time. Several different conidial types were characterized. These included intercalary arthroconidia, several types of septate conidia that are formed from other conidia, pedunculate conidia, and terminal hyphal conidia. In addition, the ultrastructure of the supporting pedestal of the pedunculate conidium was found to be separated from the mother conidium by a septum in some instances, and at other times it was not.

Además, se encontró que la ultraestructura del pedestal de soporte del conidio pedunculado estaba separada del conidio madre por un tabique en algunos casos, y en otras ocasiones no lo estaba.
