Description

Fig. 1. Maximum likelihood phylogeny (_lnL = 20431.972378) based on ribosomal DNA (18S, 5.8S, and 28S) depicts the position of Modicella species among major clades of terrestrial fungi, including representatives of Ascomycota, Basidiomycota, Glomeromycota, and Zygomycota sensu lato. Allomyces and Blastocladiella are aquatic, flagellated fungi that served as outgroups. Fungi that form sporocarps are indicated by filled circles. Statistical support is indicated above nodes as follows: maximum parsimony boostrap/maximum likelihood bootstrap/Bayesian posterior probability. Thickened branches indicate nodes that received maximum statistical support with all three phylogenetic methods. Taken from Smith et al., 2013.
Smith, M.E., Gryganskyi, A., Bonito, G., Nouhra, E., Moreno-Arroyo, B., Benny, G. 2013 Phylogenic analysis of the genus Modicella reveals an independent evolutionary orgin of sporocarp-forming fungi in the Mortierellales. Fungal Gen. and Bio. 61:61-68.

Description

Fig. 2. Morphology of Modicella species. (A) Dried yellowish sporocarps of Modicella malleola specimen FLAS-F-56295 on leaf debris. (B) Ruptured sporangium from M. malleola specimen FLAS-F-56295 reveals a large number of sporangiospores that are variable in size and maturity. (C) Intact sporangia from M. malleola specimen FLASF- 56295; each sporangium is attached to a single subtending hypha. (D) Fresh white sporocarps of Modicella reniformis collection EN253 from Argentina. (E) Intact sporangium of M. reniformis collection FH5185 from Brazil; note that M. reniformis has fewer large spores per sporangium as compared with M. malleola. (F) Sporangiospores from M. reniformis collection FH5185 show accumulation of an apparently gelatinous material within the sporangiospores of M. reniformis. Taken from Smith et al., 2013.

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...
