This is a purely artificial classification (some would call it a "dumping ground") for fungi where the stage that produces sexual spores is not formed or is unknown). Over the years, members have been gradually reclassified as laboratory cultures have yielded the sexual states. More recently DNA studies have superseded this and the classification will eventually disappear. Nevertheless "anamorph" remains a useful descriptive term for the asexual states of fungi.
