• Zoospores are MOTILE SPORANGIOSPORES - and the sporangia in which they form are called ZOOSPORANGIA.
  • The protoplasm of zoospores is NOT surrounded by a wall - in some respects they resemble flagellate protozoa.
  • Because zoospores are motile, the fungi that produce them will require water at some stage during their life cycle.
  • Three different types of zoospore distinguish the Chytridiomycota, Hyphochytridiomycota and Oomycota.
