This fungus is edible, though most people would say it doesn't taste like much. Because jelly fungi also produce spores over the surface of their bodies on microscopic structures very much like those found on the surfaces of gills beneath regular mushroomcaps.

What is a Basidium in fungi? A basidium (pl., basidia) is a microscopic sporangium (or spore-producing structure) found on the hymenophore of fruiting bodies of basidiomycete fungi which are also called tertiary mycellium, developed from secondary mycelium. The presence of basidia is one of the main characteristic features of the_Basidiomycota.

Where are club fungi found? The basidia, which are the reproductive organs of these fungi, are often contained within the familiarmushroom, commonly seen in fields after rain, on the supermarket shelves, and growing on your lawn. The fruiting bodies of a basidiomycete form a ring in a meadow, commonly called “fairy ring” (Figure 1).

How do fungi reproduce sexually? The majority of fungi can reproduce both asexually and sexually. This allows them to adjust to conditions in the environment. Other fungi reproduce asexually by producing spores. Sexual reproduction occurs when spores from two parents fuse and form a zygospore.
