Group of protists / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pseudofungi is a grouping of heterokonts,[2][3] also known as the Heterokontimycotina.[4] It consists of the Oomycota and Hyphochytridiomycetes.[4] Although numerous biochemical, ultrastructural, and genetic traits clearly place them in the heterokonts, their growth form (featuring hyphae) and mode of nutrition (osmotrophy) resemble that of fungi (which are not closely related).[4]
