The sexual (perfect, meiotic) state is referred to as the teleomorph,
The asexual (imperfect, mitotic) state of a fungus is termed the anamorph.
many fungi can have both states, especially Ascomycota-- most have either one or the other
Many fungi are successful because they can produce enormous numbers of spores, both by mitosis or meiosis.
