Chlamydospores in Candida albicans, wet mount.
The Dalmau test was used to help ID C. albicans once upon a time but phased out before I got into the labs. It was essentially growing a yeast in unfavourable environments to see if they formed chlamydospores in response to the stress. Cornmeal agar (minimal nutrient qualities) was used and the inoculum would be covered with a coverslip to decrease the amount of oxygen available to the growing yeast.
