5 Different types of Fungal Tissue

Fungi are microscopic or macroscopic, non-chlorophyllated, spore bearing, filamentous, heterotrophic thallophytes which reproduce asexually and sexually.
Individual filaments are called hyphae and network of hyphae forms mycelium. Sometime
hyphae often organize into compact tissue like structures. 
They are as follows

 1. Plectenchyma:  network of closely or loosely interwoven hyphae
A) Prosenchyma: loosely arranged network of hyphae, unfused and parallel o one another without losing their individuality
B) Pseudoparenchyma: closely arranged network of hyphae, fused and have lost their individuality

2. Sclerotia: thick compact masses of fungal hyphae (pseudoparenchymatous)
·         Acts as resting bodies and highly resistant to unfavorable conditions
·         During favorable condition, they form mycelia or fruiting bodies
·         Rhizomorphs: rope like, tough and compact fungal hyphae.
·         Helps in transport of food materials from one part of the thallus to another
·         To spread from one favourable location to another substrata

3. Rhizomorphs: rope like, tough and compact fungal hyphae.
·         Helps in transport of food materials from one part of the thallus to another
·         To spread from one favourable location to another substrata

4. Sporophore
Spore producing hyphae or structure in some fungus
At maturity, in some fungus like Agaricus, spores are produced either directly on the somatic hyphae or, more often, on special sporiferous (spore-producing) hyphae, which may be loosely arranged or grouped into intricate structures called fruiting bodies, or sporophores.

5. Stromata: The hyphae form aggregations to produce club shaped psuedoparenchymatous  structures called stromata
It is erect, stalked, unbranched or branched and forked
At maturity, Stroma contains large number of perithecia with ascospores embedded on the outer side. White or black in colour
