Ba·sid·io·my·co·ti·na (bə-sid″e-o-mi″ko-tiґnə) [basidium + Gr. mykēs fungus] the club fungi, a subphylum of perfect fungi variously grouped under either Dikaryomycota or Eumycota. Spores (basidiospores) are borne on club-shaped organs (basidia). Some authorities consider this group a class and call it Basidiomycetes, whereas others consider it a separate phylum and call it Basidiomycota. Several different systems have been proposed for classifying the taxa above family within this group.
