A group of fungi characterized by the production of sexual spores on a club-shaped filament called the basidium.
The club fungi, a major group of fungi that all produce a structure (basidium) on which basidiospores are produced. Includes mushrooms and toadstools. PICTURE
Fungal spores that are from mushrooms. The specific mushroom species cannot be identified on the culture plate. Many mushroom spores are reported to be allergenic.
