Entomophthoromycotina :. Zygomycota , or zygote fungi , is a former division or phylum of the kingdom Fungi. The members are now part of two phyla the Mucoromycota and Zoopagomycota. Some are parasites of plants, insects, and small animals, while others form symbiotic relationships with plants.

Het steeltje van 5 tot 15 mm is waterig wit doorschijnend. Knopschimmel komt vanuit en op hoedjes van kleinere soorten plaatjeszwammen. Het is een saprofiet en mogelijk parasitair. Spinellus fusiger, commonly known as the bonnet mold, is a species of fungus in the Zygomycota phylum.

It is a pin mold that is characterized by erect sporangiophores specialized hyphae that bear a sporangium that are simple in structure, brown or yellowish-brown in color, and with branched aerial filaments that bear the zygospores. It grows as a parasitic mold on mushrooms. During the reproductive phase of its life cycle, Spinellus fusiger grows throughout the cap of the mushroom host, eventually breaking through to produce radiating reproductive stalks sporangiophores bearing minute, spherical, terminal spore-containing structures called sporangia.

Ultimately, the spores in the sporangia are released after the breakdown of the outer sporangial wall, becoming passively dispersed to new locations via wind, water, and insects. It is a pin mold that is characterized by erect sporangiophores that are simple in structure, brown or yellowish-brown in color, and with branched aerial filaments that bear the zygospores.

Mucor sp. The black and grey spheres are sporangia which contain the sporangiospores and the white threads are sporangiophores aerial hypha. This little fly got infected and killed by an entomopathogenic fungus probably Entomophtora muscae , Entomophtoraceae, Zygomycota.

Fresh material brought to the studio. On en voit une partie sortant de son abdomen. The insect has died in that position after it has been infected with entomopageous fungus that introduced the insect body. We can see part of the mycelium going out of the abdomen. Sometimes, the fungus covers the entire body of the insect.

Phycomyces blakesleeanus no common name. Detail of the spore-bearing sporangium. Palo Alto, Santa Clara Co. This fast growing mold forms hairy colonies, which in this case are no larger than the dot of this "i'.

Student at the University of Connecticut annette macroscopicsolutions. Bread mold has a very simple lifecycle. It appears on the bread surface as a wind blown spore. With adequate moisture and nutrients from the bread, this spore sprouts. Once the mold attains a particular growth with paint brush like structures, it starts producing fruiting structures.

These structures, sometimes called conidia, contain spores that are blown by wind and spreads to other bread surfaces. Bread mold is found in different types, species, shapes, and colors.

Penicillium molds usually appear green and grey in color and Aspergillus mold appears similar to Penicillium to the naked eye. But both are different when examined. In the Aspergillus mold, the fine hairs contain large balloons with spores inside. Bonnet Mold Spinellus fusiger is a fungus that parasitizes other fungi, growing here on an unidentified agaric mushroom. Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park.

Near Felton, Santa Cruz Co. A dense cluster of filimentous aerial hyphae. Each of these threadlike stalks a spore-bearing sporangium at the tip. Big Basin Redwoods State Park. Unrooted phylogram for the HMG-box superfamily. When more than one domain was present for the same species, the suffix a, b or c was used. Units indicate the number of amino acid changes per position.

Species codes and accession numbers grouped by evolutionary affinity are listed in Table S2. When more than one domain is present for the same species, the suffix a, b or c was added.

Accession numbers of species grouped by evolutionary affinity are in Table S1. Units indicate number of amino acid changes per position. These are mature sporangia of Rhizopus , with the spores released as a dry mass unlike Mucor where the spores are liberated in a liquid droplet.

This is a very common mould on old bread, fruits, etc. If you leave a moist slice of bread out in a warm and humid environment, this fungus will likely quickly start growing on it. It's the common bread mold, known to science as Rhizopus stolonifer based on its hyphae growth pattern in the form of a mass of stolons.

The black dots are asexual sporangia, and the spores of this fungus are found all around the world floating in the air, just waiting for the opportunity to settle on food items such as bread and soft fruits.

As the name implies, this is a fungus that infects peaches. Shown here are the sexual zygosporangia with zygospores in the middle. These are resistant spores. There are also asexual spores smaller floating around. No privacy for randy fungi in botany lab You can see the hyphae "kissing" each other in conjugation, which leads to the fusion of the thickened gametangia at the end of the hyphae.

After fusion, the structure develops into a spiky zygosporangium where the zygospore - the only diploid cell in the fungal life cycle - will develop and finally undergo meiosis to germinate into new hyphae.

Phycomyces blakesleeanus is frequently used in teaching and research. Pilaira anomala Ces. In this picture a fungus, Mycena galericulata, has been attacked by a parasitic fungus called Spinellus fusiger. Eventually, the spores inside the sporangia will be released by breakdown of the outer sporangial wall and the spores will be passivley dispersed by wind, water, insects etc. Spinellus fusiger belongs to a division called the Zygomycota.

This group is composed of fungi that can only be seen in detail using a microscope. This group produces hyphae that are multinucleate but have no cross walls during the growth phase. Spinellus reproduces asexually by producing mitospores called aplanospores.

Spinellus can attack different gill fungi but species of Mycena seem to be the preferred host. Spinellus is closely related to the Bread Mould, Rhizopus stolonifer. Rhizopus, although called the Bread Mould, is much more common on over ripe peaches where it causes a soft brown rot.

Spinellus fusiger, commonly known as the bonnet mold is a species of fungus in the Zygomycota phylum. It grows as a parasitic mold on mushrooms, including several species from the genera Mycena, including M.

It has also been found growing on agaric species in Amanita, Gymnopus, and Hygrophorus. If you want to use this pic for a scientific publication you can do it for free. Let me know, i' am very happy to help you. Please send a mail to: vaca. Spinellus fusiger, commonly known as the bonnet mould, is a species of fungus in the Zygomycota phylum. Pilobolus are fantastically remarkable dung fungi with a ballistic spore discharge mechanism.

The black speck on top is a sporangium that sits on top of a subsporangial swelling. This swelling serves as a lense that focuses light to the bottom of the swelling, causing the stem to bend, pointing the spore mass towards the light. When pressure builds up to the point of breaking, the spore will be shot with incredible speed. Check out this fantastic video that came out of Nicholas Money's lab, complete with operatic music! A second part of this story is of the pathogenic nematodes of grass eating mammals.

These nematodes get passed out through the dung and will climb up to the very top and ride on the sporangium as it is being shot away onto a new grass blade and again be eaten by a grass-feeding mammal. Thus the cycle of infection repeats itself. Rhizopus is a common mould, usually one of the first to appear on bread and fruits.

Its relatively wide, undivided cenocytic hyphae form a white mass resembling cotton wool that rapidly becomes sprinkled with black sporangia. This is a composite image made from 3 original images that were combined using CombineZ to give the appearance of greater depth of field.
