Description

Growing on 0.1% sea sale water agar. Soil (mud, in this case) taken from a patch of cattails in a drainage ditch was spread on the plate and incubated for ~1wk.
The first photo shows (poorly) a captured amoeba. In the next, the arrow indicates the spores. The last photograph is through a stereomicroscope to show that the spores (in rectangles) are usually aerial.

Description from Wikipedia

Zygomycota, or zygote fungi, is a phylum of fungi. The name comes from zygosporangia, where resistant spherical spores are formed during sexual reproduction. Approximately 1060 species are known. They are mostly terrestrial in habitat, living in soil or on decaying plant or animal material. Some are parasites of plants, insects, and small animals, while others form symbiotic relationships with plants. Zygomycete hyphae may be coenocytic, forming septa only where gametes are formed or to wall off...
