phycomycetes

phycomycetes In older classification schemes, all primitive fungi, many of which are found in water (e.g. the water moulds, which may be parasitic on fish) or in damp areas. Many are unicellular but those that form mycelia generally have hyphae lacking cross walls, which distinguishes them from the Ascomycota and Basidiomycota. They include the Zygomycota.
