ITS–Mushrooms are the fleshy fruit body of certain fungi, but some restrict the term mushroom to the common field mushroom. All mushroom are fungi. Not all fungi, however, are mushrooms in the popular meaning of the term since the fungi with their estimated one hundred species include all the mildews and molds. The higher fungi which include mushrooms, are divided into two great groups, the Basidiomycetes, in which spores or minute reproductive bodies are produced externally on stalks, and the Ascomycetes, in which the spores are produced in sacs from which they are discharged at maturity as if shot out of a gun.
This mushroom grows in termiteholes or nestsunderground. Therefore, it needs a long, singleroot. This mushroom is famously called the “West Mushroom” in Sumatra, “Supa Bulan”, and “Supa Sangal” in the land of Pasundan, in the province of West Java.
