In the figure, conjugation between two compatible mating types of zygomycete is shown. Although the two strains cannot be distinguished from each other, they are physiologically different from each other. Before conjugation to occur, they are chemically attracted to each other, hence the grow and extend to touch each other for sexual reproduction. In the photo, two gametangia came into contact but have not yet fused to form a zygote, then develop into a zygospore. Therefore, a cross-wall can be observed between the two gametangia.
