Mucoraceae

A family of fungi (class zygomycetes) comprised of terrestrial, aquatic, and sometimes parasitic organisms; includes the genera mucor, absidia, rhizopus, and mortierella. Although the various species of the four genera are ordinarily saprobic, free-living forms, some of them cause zygomycosis (mucormycosis) in humans.

Origin: L. Mucor, mold
