Help With Fungus Type

Human spleen stained with GMS for fungus

We have this tissue (human Spleen).  It was bought for fungus and we did the GMS stain for it but not sure of it’s type.  To me (untrained eye), it looks like blastomycosis.  It stained positive with GMS, has budding and otherwise looks like round circles.  I’m sorry, I don’t have H&E pictures yet, they are coming later.

Since I am not a pathologist, just interested in all tissues, with all stains, I’m asking you to help me identify this fungus type.

What do you think this fungus type is?

Thank  you

Sm Intestine / Alcian Blue / Fungus

After staining a series of small intestine slides  with Alcian blue pH2.5 for controls I noticed little black dots in the tissue.  Upon closer look, I believe those black things are fungi.  The alcian blue stain still looks good and slides can be used for that stain but I’ve never seen fungi like this before.
