The mycelium of a multicelled fungus is a mesh or filaments, each called a ______.

  1. a. septa
  2. b. hypha
  3. c. spore

Summary Introduction

Concept introduction: Fungi are the unicelled or multicelled complex organisms seen in a variety of habitats. Their body is made up of mycelium, a large network of thread-like hyphae. There are many important functions attributed to mycelium, and many of which are very crucial for the existence of the fungi.

Explanation of Solution

Reason for correct answer:  The body of all multicelled fungus is made up of a mass of thread-like filaments. Each of these filaments is called hypha; they together form the fungal body, mycelium. In most of the fungi, the hyphae are partitioned by means of internal cross-walls called septum. The hyphae are very essential for the effective absorption of nutrients from the host.

Option b. is given as “hypha”. Since the body of a multicelled fungus is made up of a mesh of filaments known as hyphae, option b...
