Fungi (singular: fungus) are non-chlorophyllated, thallophytes (undifferentiated plant body) with heterotrophic mode of nutrition. The branch of science that deals with the study of fungus is called Mycology.
Eubacteria are single celled prokaryotic microorganisms living in variety of environments. Eubacteria posses rigid peptidoglycan cell wall. The branch of science that deals with the study of bacteria is called Bacteriology.
10 Differences between Eubacteria and Fungi (Eubacteria vs Fungus)
Mostly multi-cellular, unicellular in yeast
Cell membrane contains sterols
Sterols absent except in Mycoplasma
Cell wall made up of chitins, glucans and mannans
Peptidoglycan cell wall
Thallus is more complex and form filamentous hyphae and network of hyphae forms mycelium
The three major morphological forms are cocci (spherical), bacilli (rod shaped), spirilla (spiral shaped)
Mode of nutrition is heterotrophic and live either as saprophytes, parasites or symbionts
Heterotrophic, photoautotrophic, chemotrophic,  aerobic or facultative anaerobic
Asexual reproduction by variety of spores which include conidia, zoospores etc
Asexual reproduction by binary fission
Sexual reproduction is common except in Deuteromycetes; may be isogamous, anisogamous or oogamous
A primitive form of sexual reproduction called conjugation occurs in some bacteria where there is direct exchange of genetic materials between two bacterial cells by cell to cell contact
Eg: Yeast  (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), Mushroom  (Agaricus bisporus)
Eg:  Escherichia coli (gut bacteria), Lactobacillus lactis in milk
