Description

This zygomycete was found growing on herbivore dung I collected back in March. It had been stored at 4C until this week.

I'm not sure of the genus or species. I think it might be part of the Murorales, but I cannot be certain of that either. All I know is that it is not Phycomyces or Pilobulos.

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...
