Sporangiophores are asexual spores produced by sporangia at the tip of specialized aerial branches. They are involved in asexual reproduction and are dispersed by wind.


Zygospores are large, thick-walled spores formed when the tips of two sexually compatible hyphae, or gametangia, of fungi fused together. They are involved in sexual reproduction. They are resistant and tide over unfavourable environmental conditions.
