The Rhizomucor spp. sporangiospores are usually under 6 microns in diameter with round to slightly oval spores although some are irregularly shaped. The sporangiospores in this sample are greater than 6 microns and have the characteristic walnut shell shape of a Rhizopus spp. spore. Both of these organisms can cause strawberries to rot.
