I'm not so familiar with its application in current mycological
My old (1961) Ainsworth & Bisby's definition - gemma - a chlamydospore -
esp. of a phycomycete.  

Phycomycete now being an obsolete term esp. referred to zygomycotina.

I'm hoping you would help me to determine whether the following fungal 
terminology relationship statements are correct:

Gemmae refers to asexual propagules borne both singly and in chains.
Chlamydospore is an old term for a singly borne gemma.
Catenulate conidia is a current term for gemmae borne in chains.
When referring to fungi (rather than liverworts etc), gemmae is a 
synonym of conidia.
In general (plants or fungi), gemmae refer to asexual propagules.

I'm wondering if I've misunderstood, for example if gemmae refer to 
conidial propagules only of a specific group like ascos or suchlike.

Thanks in advance for your help!
