Myecilium is a filamentous structure that constitutes the main body of a fungus


It can be septate or aseptate(ceanocitic), monokaryotic(each cell has a single nucleus), dikaryotic(each cell has two nuclei) depending upon the class.

For example, all memebers of phycomycetes have aseptate ceanocitic mycelium.All members of deuteromycetes have septate mycelium which are monokaryotic(before fertilization) or dikaryotic(After fertilization).
