pseudoparaphysis (noun, pl. pseudoparaphyses;ascocarp term) – an interascal hypha derived from an ascohymenial development but originating from above (i. e., the tectum), and not from the base of the ascocarp. Pseudoparaphyses frequently fuse with hyphae below and secondarily may even become detached; they are then very difficult to distinguish from true paraphyses; Some pseudoparaphyses do not extent across the entire hymenium, but remain restricted to the upper part. Related terms: paraphysis, periphysis.
