Monilia may be regarded physiologically as true yeasts. since they too ferment sugars with the production of gas. Morphologically, however, they differ from true yeasts (Saccharomyces) in that they have a vegetative body (mycelium), consisting of a collection of fine filaments or threads (hyphae) and reproduce by free-born spores (conidia). True yeasts have no definite mycelium and they reproduce by ascospores. Consequently the genus, Monilia Persoon is very generally placed in the class, Fungi imperfecti (Hyphomycetes). It is further classified in the family Oosporaceae Saccardo, as its spores are arranged in chain-like formation. Further morphological differentiation has not been made
