Deuteromycota
Fungi Imperfecti Fun"gi Im`per*fec"ti, pl. [L. imperfecti imperfect.] (Bot.) A heterogenous phylum of fungi which lack a sexual phase, or of which the sexual phase is not known. Some undoubtedly represent the conidium stages of various Ascomycetes. It is not considered a natural phylum, and is also called the {Deuteromycota}. The group is divided into the orders {Sph[ae]ropsidales}, {Melanconiales}, and {Moniliales}. It includes the genera {Penicillium} and {Aspergillus}, which reproduce asexually by means of conidia. [Webster 1913 Suppl. +PJC]
