A specialized structure, often macroscopic, on or in which spores are produced. Fin. Swe.
A specialized macroscopic, spore-producing structure that is composed of slime and bacterial cells, is often brightly colored, and may be visible to the naked eye. Formed by some fungi (e.g., mushrooms) and Mycobacteria. Fruiting bodies are distinct in size, shape, and coloration for each species.
the spore-bearing organ of a fungus (conk).
An organ of a fungus which carries or produces spores for the fungus' reproduction. For example, a mushroom is a fruiting body of a fungus; the main body of the fungus is underground and comsists of a network formed from a mass of tubular, branching filaments
The part of a fungus that bears the reproductive tissues.

an organ specialized for producing spores
any complex fungal structure that contains or bears spores.
A complex fungal structure containing spores.
A general term for the spore bearing structures in fungi.
Any of various complex, spore-bearing fungal structures.
A complex structure that bears fungal spores, e.g. sporangia, coremia, sporodochia, acervuli, pycinidia, apothecia, perithecia.
a structure that bears the spore-producing structures and spores in fleshy and woody higher fungi.
(pl. fruiting bodies): Complex sporulating fungal structure. (2)
Any of a number of kinds of reproductive structures that produce spores.
A mushroom. The part of the mushroom that grows above ground.
A specialized fungal structure, often prominently visible, on or in which spores are produced. The large conks often encountered on tree trunks are an example.
