Sporogenesis in pycnia of Puccinia sorghi is annellophoric, but at secession the spore retains the septal lamella and at least part of the lower septal wall. Pycniospores are bounded by a thin (±65 nm) wall and contain a nucleolate nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, tubule-containing structures, several short mitochondria with predominantly platelike cristae, many ribosomes, and a few lipoid bodies. Septal pores were sectioned infrequently in pycnia, but more commonly in inter- and intracellular hyphae. All were equipped with a pulley-wheel apparatus.
