I see this structure fairly frequently and I am not sure what it is.

I get those in almost every sample. Someone identified them as some sort of fungus spore, but gave no name for them. I'd be interested in knowing also.

On the other hand, I just Googled atlernaria spores, and that's exactly what they are. :)
