Basidiomycetes are filamentous fungi made of hyphae (with the exception of yeasts) and they reproduce sexually by the formation of club shaped cells called basidia. Some basidiomycetes also reproduce asexually. Examples of basidiomycetes include bracket fungi, polypores, jelly fungi, boletes, chanterelles, smuts, bunts, rusts, mirror yeasts, and mushrooms. This is a picture of a mushroom, a basidiomycete.
