Kingdom : Fungi -
Fungi are multicelled, non photosynthetic organism.
Some fungi are microscopic while others can be seen with the naked eyes.
Some fungi are unicellular while others are multicellular consisting of numerous filaments known as hyphae.
The hyphae branch profusely and from a network called mycelium.
Since fungi Lack chlorophyll they can’t synthesise their own food and therefore they either lead a parasitic or sporophytic life.

The fungi develop haustoria which help in absorption of nutrients from the host. Ex. mucor
