I sent some out to someone not so long ago so I don't have much left but...  You can make your own pretty easily.  I streaked some bread mold onto a blood agar plate and let it grow (at room temp).  Cut up the agar into cassette-sized pieces (wrapped mine in papers before putting them into the cassettes) and run them through your tissue processor.  Loaded with hyphae... beautiful PAS and GMS.

Does someone have a good fungus control block that demonstrates hyphae?
Would be truly appreciated
