Chondrostereum purpureum: hyphae

Chondrostereum purpureum: hyphae
Hyphae in a squash preparation of cells from the margin of the discoid colony.

The oblique transmitted light I'm using here reveals structural detail that's hard to see with conventional Kohler illumination, but it should be noted that the 3D appearance is not a true indication of relief in the z-axis. Instead, OTL works by phase contrast constructive and destructive interference of light waves, strong contrast appearing on edges that represent boundaries of large differences in refractive index.
