Environmental 18S rRNA gene surveys of microbial eukaryotes have recently revealed the diversity of major parasitic agents in pelagic freshwater systems, consisting primarily of chytrid fungi. To date, only a few studies have reported the presence of chydrids in the marine environment and a limited number of marine chytrids have been properly identified and characterized. Here, we report the isolation and cultivation of a marine chytrid from samples taken during a bloom of the toxic… 
Collimyces mutans gen. et sp. nov. (Rhizophydiales, Collimycetaceae fam. nov.), a New Chytrid Parasite of Microglena (Volvocales, clade Monadinia).
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.
Parasitoid chytridiomycete Ericiomyces syringoforeus gen. et sp. nov. has unique cellular structures to infect the host
TLDR
A novel chytridiomycete genus and species, characterized by light microscopical observations, ultrastructure, and molecular phylogenetic analysis of the parasitic Chytrid of brackish-water dinoflagellate Kryptoperidinium foliaceum from the Baltic Sea, and revealed at least two unique traits: the syringe-like organelle in the cyst and funnel-shaped structure anchoring sporangium in the host wall.
A New Parasitic Chytrid, Staurastromyces oculus (Rhizophydiales, Staurastromycetaceae fam. nov.), Infecting the Freshwater Desmid Staurastrum sp.
TLDR
Based on the unique zoospore ultrastructure, combined with thallus morphology, and molecular phylogenetic placement, this parasitic chytrid is described as a new genus and species Staurastromyces oculus, within a new family Sturastromycetaceae.
Phylogenetic Position of Parasitic Chytrids on Diatoms: Characterization of a Novel Clade in Chytridiomycota
Chytrids are true fungi that reproduce with posteriorly uniflagellate zoospores. In the last decade, environmental DNA surveys revealed a large number of uncultured chytrids as well as undescribed
Taxonomic revision of the genus Zygorhizidium: Zygorhizidiales and Zygophlyctidales ord. nov. (Chytridiomycetes, Chytridiomycota)
TLDR
Zoospore ultrastructural observation revealed that the two lineages of Zygorhizidium can be distinguished from each other and both possess unique characters among the known orders within the Chytridiomycetes.
Characterization of a new chytrid species parasitic on the dinoflagellate, Peridinium gatunense
TLDR
It is demonstrated that environmental factors influence the chytrid’s potential to affect Peridinium gatunense populations and its thallus morphology was distinct from these other taxa, as well as other described parasites of dinoflagellates.
Pendulichytrium sphaericum gen. et sp. nov. (Chytridiales, Chytriomycetaceae), a new chytrid parasitic on the diatom, Aulacoseira granulata
TLDR
Morphological features of KS93 were distinct from those of any other taxa in the Chytriomycetaceae and from any described chytrids and were described as Pendulichytrium sphaericum gen. et sp.
Fungal Systematics and Evolution
During the last decade, the classification system of chytrids has dramatically changed based on zoospore ultrastructure and molecular phylogeny. In contrast to well-studied saprotrophic chytrids,
A new family and four new genera in Rhizophydiales (Chytridiomycota)
TLDR
On the bases of morphological, ultrastructural and molecular evidence, 10 strains from a marine chytrid lineage placed in the new family Halomycetaceae and four new genera in Rhizophydiales are placed.
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.

Parvilucifera rostrata sp. nov. (Perkinsozoa), a novel parasitoid that infects planktonic dinoflagellates.
TLDR
Both Parvilucifera species are generalist parasitoids with similar generation times, and this study raises the question of how two parasitoid exploiting similar ecological resources and infection strategies can coexist in the same ecosystem.
Description, host-specificity, and strain selectivity of the dinoflagellate parasite Parvilucifera sinerae sp. nov. (Perkinsozoa).
TLDR
The findings on this newly described parasite point to a complex host-parasite interaction and provide valuable information that leads to a reconsideration of the biological strategy to control dinoflagellate blooms by means of intentional parasitic infections.
Unveiling fungal zooflagellates as members of freshwater picoeukaryotes: evidence from a molecular diversity study in a deep meromictic lake.
TLDR
It is thought that fungal zooflagellates have been misidentified as phagotrophic nanoflageLLates in previous studies, in agreement with a recent experimental demonstration that zoospore-producing fungi and parasitic activity may play an important role in aquatic food webs.
The Molecular Diversity of Freshwater Picoeukaryotes Reveals High Occurrence of Putative Parasitoids in the Plankton
TLDR
An original 18S rDNA survey of freshwater picoeukaryotes sampled during spring/summer 2005, complementing an earlier study conducted in autumn 2004, highlighted the dominance of parasites and saprotrophs, and provided indications that these organisms have probably been wrongfully regarded as bacterivores in previous studies.
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.
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.
New taxa are delineated in Alphamycetaceae (Rhizophydiales, Chytridiomycota)
TLDR
This work analyzes zoospore ultrastructure and LSU and ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 rRNA gene sequences of 11 isolates in Alphamycetaceae from Australia and North, Central, and South America, and delineates two new genera, Betamyces and Gammamyces, each with a distinct Zoospore subtype within the family.
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.
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.
