An outline for the reclassification of the Chytridiales, and for a new order, the Spizellomycetales
An outline is presented for the reclassification of the Chytridiales into two orders based on fundamental differences in zoospore ultrastructure. The new order Spizellomycetales includes species with
Morphology and development of rumen fungi: Neocallimastix sp., Piromyces communis, and Orpinomyces bovis gen.nov., sp.nov.
Developmental stages and morphological variation are described for three species of fungi from the rumen of a Holstein steer and the enigmatic problem of classification of diverse and polymorphic rumen fungi are discussed.
Classification of anaerobic gut fungi from herbivores with emphasis on rumen fungi from Malaysia
Descriptive accounts and keys are given for 14 species in five genera of obligately anaerobic fungi found in the gut of herbivores, based entirely on thallus morphology.
Evolution and kingdoms of organisms from the perspective of a mycologist
These issues are addressed by first discussing the recent concepts concerning the origin of the various groups traditionally called fungi, and then by presenting the views on the definition and classification of fungi in the light of these revelations.
Rhizophlyctidales--a new order in Chytridiomycota.
This study analysed zoospore ultrastructure and combined nu-rRNA gene sequences of 49 isolates from globally distributed soil samples and designated a group of Rhizophlyctis rosea-like isolates is designated as a new order, the Rhophyslyctidales.

The composition of the rootlet systems in different Chytridiomycete taxa indicate that the Monoblepharidiales evolved from the ChYtridiale, and the Blastocladiales from the Spizellomycetales.
Zoospore ultrastructure of three Chytridium species and Rhizoclosmatium globosum
Zoospore cytology of Chytridium lagenaria and Rhizoclosmatium globosum have many ultrastructural characteristics in common and, considered of particular significance, show similarities in the basal area by the kinetosome.
The flagellar apparatus in the Chytridiales
The characteristics of the flagellar apparatus which are unique to the class are a spiral structure which connects to the A tubules of the doublets and coils in the core of the transition zone which distinguish this class of fungi from the Oomycetes, from algae, protozoa, and other eukaryotes.
