  • Three species of Myzocytium parasitic on nematodes are described as new. In M. papillatum the zoospores encyst directly on the host cuticle before penetration. This species produces smooth, spherical oospores. In M. glutinosporum the biflagellate zoospores do not attack the host directly; after encystment they produce a spherical adhesive bud which allows the spores to adhere to the cuticle of passing nematodes. This species produces echinulate, spherical oospores. In M. anomalum the primary… CONTINUE READING
