Mycelium, plural mycelia, the mass of branched, tubular filaments (hyphae) of fungi. The mycelium makes up the thallus, or undifferentiated body, of a typical fungus. Complete Answer: Saccharomyces is a genus of fungi that includes mainly yeasts. The hyphae or mycelium is absent in this class. They show blastoconidia (cell buds), are unicellular, globose, and ellipsoid to elongate in shape but pseudohyphae present in basic forms. Phytophthora, Rhizopus, and Microsporum fungi, all consist of differently growing hyphae that help in locomotion. So, ‘Saccharomyces’ is the correct answer. Additional information: Fungi is a kingdom out of five kingdoms that include monera, Protista, fungi, plate, and Animalia. A fungus is a multicellular, eukaryotic organism that includes microorganisms such as yeasts and molds, as well as the mushrooms. The fungus can be beneficial for us and they may cause disease also. The classification of fungi was given by Alexopolous and Mims proposed in 1979. Fungi are usually classified into four divisions: - Chytridiomycota (chytrids). - Zygomycota (bread molds). - Ascomycota (yeasts and sac fungi. - Basidiomycota (club fungi). Note: Saccharomyces is also known as sugar fungus. It can be used in food production as well. Cerevisiae and paradoxus are some good examples of the Saccharomyces family that can be used in the production of bread and wine respectively.
