Spontaneous rotational inversion in Phycomyces.
The filamentary fungus Phycomyces blakesleeanus undergoes a series of remarkable transitions during aerial growth. During what is known as the stage IV growth phase, the fungus extends while rotating in a counterclockwise manner when viewed from above (stage IVa) and then, while continuing to grow, spontaneously reverses to a clockwise rotation (stage IVb).
