    A. COMMON MOLDS

    Make drawings of the molds as they appear microscopically under high magnification and indicate the type of asexual spore they produce. Also note their color and appearance on SDA.

    B. DERMATOPHYTES

    1. Describe the results of Microsporum growing on Dermatophyte Test Medium (DTM):

    • Original color of DTM =
