Lichens are dual organisms that have a permanent symbiotic association of a fungus and an alga. The fungal partner is called mycobiont and the algal partner is called phycobiont.

Mycorrhiza is associated with a fungus with roots, but not with algae, while BGA is a blue-green alga a member of Monera having a prokaryotic cell.
