1st Place in Nature“The Fungal Con Artist”

This mysterious flower imposter is actually a fungus! Carefully excavated from a colonized blueberry fruit is the intact ‘angel-wing’ structure of the mummy berry pathogen- Monilinia vaccinii-corymbosi. The shape and size of each ‘petal’ of this flower like structure is delineated by the locules in the fruit. The structure is itself held together by the seeds and placenta (brown) in the center of the fruit.
