Asexual reproduction in fungi

Fungi reproduce asexually by means of sporulation and fragmentation.

Fragmentation :

This is a type of asexual reproduction in fungi which is similar to the vegetative reproduction in some plants. In this process, a detached fragment of the fungal hyphae gives rise to a new individual under suitable conditions.

Sporulation :
In fungi, other than yeasts, the most common type of asexual reproduction is sporulation.
The process of formation of spores is called sporulation. The spores formed in sporangia are called sporangiospores which are formed by several mitotic divisions. A sporangiospore germinate to develop into an organism with many vegetative hyphae. Eg: Mucor

Conidia :
In this process the fungal hyphae differentiate into structures like sporangia, conidiophores etc., which will give rise spores or condidia by mitotic division. Eg: Asperigillus
