  1. ascomycete
    a member of the fungus phylum Ascomycota, whose members form sexual spores in a saclike case known as an ascus
  2. ascus
    a saclike case in which sexual spores are formed by members of the fungus phylum Ascomycota
  3. basidiomycete
    a member of the fungus phylum Basidiomycota, which includes species that produce sexual spores in club-shaped cells known as basidia
  4. basidium
    a diploid cell, typically club-shaped, formed by members of the fungus phylum Basidiomycota; produces basidiospores by meiosis
  5. chytrid
    a member of the fungus phylum Chytridomycota, which includes species with flagellated swimming spores
  6. club fungus
    a fungus of the phylum Basidiomycota, whose members (which include mushrooms, puffballs, and shelf fungi) reproduce by means of basidiospores
  7. glomeromycete
    a member of the fungus phylum Glomeromycota, which includes species that form mycorrhizal associations with plant roots and that form bush-shaped branching structures inside plant cells
  8. hypha
    in fungi, a threadlike structure that consists of elongated cells, typically with many haploid nuclei; many of these make up the fungal body
  9. lichen
    a symbiotic association between an alga or a cyanobacterium and a fungus, resulting in a composite organism
  10. mycelium
    the body of a fungus, consisting of a mass of hyphae
  11. mycorrhiza
    a symbiotic association between a fungus and the roots of a land plant that facilitates mineral extraction and absorption
  12. sac fungus
    a member of the fungus phylum Ascomycota, whose members form spores in a saclike case called an ascus
  13. septum
    a partition that separates the fungal hypha into individual cells; pores in septa allow the transfer of materials between cells
  14. sporangium
    a structure in which spores are produced
  15. spore
    in plants and fungi, a haploid cells capable of developing into an adult without fusing with another cell (without fertilization)
  16. zygomycete
    a fungus of the phylum Zygomycota, which includes the species that causes fruit rot and bread mold
