A chytrid first discovered in Mediterranean sands and called Rhizophlyctis harderi was classified in the genus Rhizophlyctis based on its interbiotic vegetative thalli with multiple rhizoidal axes and resting thalli with tufts of rhizoid-like appendages. Developmental, electron microscopic and molecular analyses, however, have brought into question the proper placement of this chytrid. Because its original description was in German and not Latin, the name R. harderi is not validly published. We… Expand

TLDR
A novel chytrid culture KS100 that parasitizes the green alga, Microglena coccifera (Volvocales), was investigated and possessed a kinetosome-associated structure whose morphology and positioning were unique among the Rhizophydiales. Expand

Long rDNA amplicon sequencing of insect-infecting nephridiophagids reveals their affiliation to the Chytridiomycota and a potential to switch between hosts
TLDR
Using long-read sequencing of the nearly complete rDNA operon of numerous further species obtained from cockroaches and earwigs to improve the resolution of the phylogenetic analysis, a robust affiliation of nephridiophagids with the Chytridiomycota is found. Expand
Long rDNA amplicon sequencing of insect-infecting nephridiophagids reveals their affiliation to the Chytridiomycota (Fungi) and a potential to switch between hosts
TLDR
A robust affiliation of nephridiophagids with the Chytridiomycota — a group of zoosporic fungi that comprises parasites of diverse host taxa, such as microphytes, plants, and amphibians is found. Expand
Synchytrium microbalum sp. nov. is a saprobic species in a lineage of parasites.
TLDR
An unknown, saprobic chytrid, related to Synchytrium, which heretofore has been considered a lineage of parasites is found and placed within a clade of SynChytrium species and the new species is named Synchydrium microbalum. Expand
Classification of marine Ascomycota, Basidiomycota, Blastocladiomycota and Chytridiomycota
TLDR
The Halosphaeriaceae remains the largest family of marine fungi with 141 species in 59 genera, while the most specious genera are Aspergillus, Penicillium and the yeast genus Candida. Expand

Kappamyces , a new genus in the Chytridiales (Chytridiomycota)
TLDR
The zoospore of Kappamyces laurelensis may be the simplest type of zoospores in the Chytridiales, and in a parsimony analysis of large subunit rRNA gene sequences, a grouping of K. laurelense and two other isolates were sister to the core Rhizophydium clade, and both the K. Laurelensis group and the coreRhizophydiales clade had 100% bootstrap support. Expand
Ultrastructural and molecular phylogenetic delineation of a new order, the Rhizophydiales (Chytridiomycota).
TLDR
A framework for additional taxonomic revisions within the new order Rhizophydiales is provided and compares genetic variation useful in defining genera, species, and populations within this lineage of chytrids to a broader sampling of representatives is needed before taxonomic decisions can be made for remaining clades within the RhizophYDiales. Expand
Ultrastructural and molecular analyses of Rhizophydiales (Chytridiomycota) isolates from North America and Argentina.
TLDR
Results of this study underscore that even more extensive sampling from varied habitats and geographies is needed to adequately ascertain the diversity of chytrids in the Rhizophydiales. Expand
Operculomyces is a new genus in the order Rhizophydiales
TLDR
The zoospore ultrastructure and scanning electron and light microscopic level morphology of this monocentric, endogenous, operculate chytrid are described and it is described as a new genus and species, Operculomyces laminatus. Expand
Zoospore ultrastructure in the genus Rhizophydium (Chytridiales)
TLDR
The zoospore ultrastructure of 12 species of Rhizophydium is described and is basically similar to the Chytridium zoospores having the nucleus, a compact cluster of ribosomes, one or more mitochondria, and a microbody – lipid globule complex compartmentalized into the core of the Zoospore by a double membrane system.
