The range of colors in muscardine diseases comprises white,
green, pink and red pigmentation (Figs. 2.33, 2.34).

Initially, fungal mycelia can be observed on the intersegmental
membranes of the host (Fig. 2.34a, b) and then gradually
progresses to the insect’s body, ultimately enclosing the complete
body of the insect (Fig. 2.34c)..
