  1. class gasteromycetes

    Class Gasteromycetes is a group of fungi characterized by producing spores inside a sealed, typically round, basidiocarp or fruiting body, which only rupture or decay to release the spores. They are a diverse group and include puffballs, earthstars, stinkhorns and birds' nest fungi. Many of these species were historically grouped into this class, but due to molecular evidence, some have now been placed in other classes of the phylum Basidiomycota. Despite this, the term "gasteromycetes" is still informally used to describe fungi with this type of fruiting body.
