Default Assembly of a mycete genome with HGAP4


I need to assemble a fungus genome for which no information is known. When doing the assembly with canu, I get an assembly of 4918 contigs with a total of 57 123 496 bp. However, with HGAP4, I get an assembly of 2617 contigs with a total of 27,258,314 bp. Why such a big difference? Is it because the genome is diploid and HGAP4 assembles only one haplotype while canu assembles both?

Thank you,
