Endogonales is an order of fungi within the phylum of Zygomycota. It contains only one family, Endogonaceae, with four genera and 27 species.

Contents

Life cycle

The life cycle of the Engogonales is distinguished by their production of small sporocarps containing many zygospores, which are eaten by rodents and distributed by their feces.

They also produce a fetid odor that attracts mammals and encourages them to eat their fruiting bodies, and so spread their spores.

Food

Like all fungi, they are heterotrophs with some being described as saprobes (with weak evidence).
