Amanita Mold

Hypomyces hyalinus, also known as the Amanita mold, is a parasitic fungus that invades the genus Amanita. Likewise, these species are used to destroy certain species, as they are strong parasites that completely disfigure the hosts by attacking the basidiocarp, resulting in the death of the host's fruiting bodies, stopping its reproduction. On the other hand, Hypomyces hyalinus has been cultured on oatmeal agar and potato dextrose agar. This method allows scientists to observe why this pathogen is such a deadly parasite at a biochemical and microscopic level. Finally, as the life cycle of Amanita Mold has both asexual and sexual reproduction, this species uses some of its teleomorphic structures in parasital activity.
