Cryptococcus neoformans basidium sporulation. This is a mating between Cryptococcus neoformans strains H99 and KN99a, and the image shows a scanning electron micrograph of the structures produced during bisexual reproduction. False colored to show the hyphae and basidium (green) and the abundant meiotic spores (red and pink) that decorate the surface of the basidium. See Jung et al. 643–652.
