mycota (noun,no singular) – see mycobiota. The term "–mycota" is used in biological nomenclature as asuffix that designates a phylum of fungi. Therefore, "mycota" is not a desirable replacement for flora. If it is necessary to emphasize that a "flora of fungi" does not represent plants, the term mycobiota should be used.
