A non-motile, asexual spore that forms on a sporogenous cell. Little round buds that break off of the parent organism and are carried away to grow into new Hyphae. Conidia often grow in a long cell which differentiates into a chain of conidiospores, free of an enclosing membrane. Some organisms simply add to the chain one cell at a time, instead of taking one long Conidia and separating it all at once. These chains then separate, where the non-motile conidiaspores are carried away by the environment.
