Zygomycetes (specifics for lab)
*Called sporangium fungi
* ex: Rhizopus Stolonifer
* non septate
* asexual structure called sporangium- produces sporangiospores
* Sexual spore produced by conjugagtion when (+) hyphae and (-) fused is called zygospore.
* Zygospores can endure harsh environments until conditions improve and new sporangium.
