Hyphae of the mycorrhizal surface are arranged in small short bundles, which very frequently ramify and unify with others repeatedly and in this way form ring-like structures. The dark spots on the mantle of the colour photo are the ’holes’ formed by the rings; these holes can often be seen already in a dissecting microscope at highest magnification.
