Cleistothecia formed by mating crosses. A: Cleistothecia formed by UH3 and UC1, DIC image, 400×. B: Cleistothecia formed by UH3 and UC26, DIC image, 400×. C: Dissected cleistothecia from UH3 and UC26 pairing, DIC image, 400×. D: Alpha projection of Z-stack taken of cleistothecia formed by UH3 and UC1, confocal image of autofluorescence, 600×. The coiled surface hyphae are identified by short arrows while the net of short, branched hyphae are identified by long arrows.
