A synnema (plural synnemata, also coremia; derivation: "Threads together") is a large, erect reproductive structure borne by some fungi, bearing compact conidiophores,[1] which fuse together to form a strand resembling a stalk of wheat, with conidia at the end or on the edges.[2]

Fungal genera which bear synnemata include Doratomyces.
