How to use "Bruchus" in context?
Bruchus is a genus of fungus in the family Polyporaceae. The genus was first described scientifically in 1738 by Martini and Thein. The widespread genus contains about 50 species, distributed throughout the world, with most species found in Europe, North America, and Asia. Certain members of the genus are parasitic on plants, while others are saprobes, feeding on soil debris.
The fruit body of a bruchid typically consists of a cap that is convex, equal, or slightly expanded in the center, and attached at a demarcated stalk ending in a fleshy depression.
