The death of the host was followed by growth of the fungus through mesodermal and epidermal tissues, leading to larval mummification about 6—7 days post-inoculation. Extensive aerial outgrowths of the fungus followed, mostly through the intersegmental regions of larvae. Abundant branched conidiophores developed, forming a confluent yellow brown mat over the entire host body 7 days after inoculation. Each conidiophore had an apical vesicle bearing numerous phialides from which conidia were developed in long chains.

Introduction Dispersal plays a major role in the population dynamics of almost all organisms, and may, depending on the organism, involve mature individuals as well as dedicated dispersal propagules such as pollen, seeds and spores 1 , 2.
