Sporangia of Olpidium sp. in roots from a natural grassland community collected from the University of California's field  research  facility at Hopland. Although Olpidium sp. are very common in roots of both crop and wild plants and generally cause no damage to the plant on their own, they are however, important vectors of several soil-borne plant viruses. Image acquired using the LSM710 confocal microscope in the BIF.
