The ascospores of Neosartorya stramenia (image C) and Talaromyces flavus (image D, Eliades et al. 2006)  were measured (length at their widest point excluding protruding surface structures) using ImageJ with the given scale bar of 2 µm . These results show that N. stramenia ascospores (average diameter 2.16 µm) are smaller than T. flavus (average diameter 3.28 µm).
