Fungi within the phylum Zygomycota are known as zygomycetes. The zygomycetes are terrestrial. They’re usually saprotrophs but there are several parasites. The hyphae are coenocytic (theyn lack septa). Septa are located just into the reproductive structures.
Reproduction in Zygomycota
Fusion of two hyphae causes the forming of a zygosporangium, a thick-walled structure that is effective at surviving ecological extremes.
