Description

Interesting fungus, notice the yellow and black globules at the end of wire-like fibers. The black fibers were about 2.5 - 3.0 inches long.

The substrate is not so interesting, " dog poo". I did not collect any.

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...
