In diphtheria I developed the bacteria to the full form--the mucor malignans.
Species of mucor, Botrytis, and other fungi, may also be met with.
The Aspergillus and the Penicillium differ from the mucor in having their spores naked and not enclosed in a spore-case.
Other moulds are sometimes met with, parasitic upon the larger species of mucor.
They were covered with mould, consisting chiefly of a species of mucor, and one also of Botrytis or Botryosporium.
The mash is then cooled down somewhat, diluted with sterilized water and innoculated with the mucor filaments.
The mucilage surrounding endospores of mucor, conidia of Empusa, &c., serves to gum the spore to animals.
Another very common and beautiful mould, Aspergillus glaucus (2, Fig. 22), often grows with mucor on the top of jam.
