The „true” fungi have been referred to as the KingdomFungi,the KingdomEumyceteae,or theEumycota[1].The fungi are eukaryotic organisms, characterized by: a diversity of microbodies; cell walls that have a great similarity of architecture; hyphae that have a major chitin component, extended apically, and divide by centripetal invagination of the plasma membrane; lomasomes: sponge-like intumescences seen on the inside of the cell wall; complete absence of the Golgi organelle in the terrestrial assemblages (zygomycetes, ascomycetes, and basidiomycetes) and some of the aquatic taxa; and nuclei in which most, if not all, gene products involved in mitosis probably have higher eukaryotic paramologues but which, in other ways, are exceptional [2]. Fungi are reproducing sexually or asexually, the diploid phase generally short-lived. Fungi parasitize a wide range of plants, animals, and other fungi [3].
