Entomophthoromycota is one of six major phylogenetic lineages among the former phylum Zygomycota. These early terrestrial fungi share evolutionarily ancestral characters such as coenocytic mycelium and gametangiogamy as a sexual process resulting in zygospore formation. Previous molecular studies have shown the monophyly of Entomophthoromycota, thus justifying raising the taxonomic status of these fungi to a phylum. Multi-gene phylogenies have identified five major lineages of… 
Morphological and Molecular Characterization of Entomophthorales (Entomophthoromycota: Entomophthoromycotina) from Argentina
TLDR
The present study was initiated to elucidate the taxonomy of the entomophthoralean fungi in Argentina according to their morphological and molecular characters and emphasize the significance of the combination of molecular data and information on morphology, ecology, and host range for accurate identification of entomophile and allied genera.
Evolutionary relationships among Massospora spp. (Entomophthorales), obligate pathogens of cicadas
TLDR
The results of the morphological study presented here indicate that spore measurements may not be phylogenetically or diagnostically informative in Massospora, and the emerging phylogenetic framework can provide a foundation for exploring co-evolutionary relationships with cicada hosts and the evolution of behavior-altering compounds.

Utilizing Genomics to Study Entomopathogenicity in the Fungal Phylum Entomophthoromycota: A Review of Current Genetic Resources.
TLDR
The current genetic resources for Entomophthoromycota are summarized and research areas that are likely to be significantly advanced from the availability of new whole-genome resources are identified.
Fungal evolution: diversity, taxonomy and phylogeny of the Fungi
TLDR
The current status of the phylogeny and taxonomy of fungi is reviewed, providing an overview of the main defined groups and the main phylogenetic and taxonomical controversies and hypotheses in the field.
Entomophthoromycota : A New Overview of Some of the Oldest Terrestrial Fungi
TLDR
The phylogenetically based revision of these fungi in a new phylum validated the previous, traditionally based classification of all of this fungi in six families, although these families are now redistributed among three classes in the phylum.
 Azygosporus gen. nov., a synapmorphic clade in the family Ancylistaceae
The fungal genus Conidiobolus sensu lato was delimited into four genera based on morphology and phylogeny. However, the taxonomic placement of C. parvus has not been determined until now. Here, we
A taxonomic revision of the genus Conidiobolus (Ancylistaceae, Entomophthorales): four clades including three new genera
TLDR
The well-known Conidiobolus is revised and three new genera Capillidium, Microconidiabolus and Neoconidioblus are proposed along with one new record and 22 new combinations.
The genus Entomophthora: bringing the insect destroyers into the twenty-first century
TLDR
It is argued that the high host-specificity and obligate life-style of most Entomophthora species provides ample scope for having been shaped by close coevolution with insects despite the current general lack of such evidence.
Human Fungal Pathogens of Mucorales and Entomophthorales.
TLDR
This review covers two different types of fungal infections: "mucormycosis" and "entomophthoramycosis," both of which are known to infect humans.

Molecular phylogeny of the Entomophthoromycota.
TLDR
It is suggested that entomopathogenic lineages in Entomophthoraceae probably evolved from saprobic or facultatively pathogenic ancestors during or shortly after the evolutionary radiation of the arthropods.
Phylogeny of the Zygomycota based on nuclear ribosomal sequence data.
TLDR
A molecular-based phylogeny including recognized representatives of the Zygomycetes and TrichomycETes with a combined dataset for nuclear rRNA 18S (SSU), 5.8S and 28S (LSU) genes is presented.
Molecular Characters of Zygomycetous Fungi
TLDR
The traditional Zygomycota has recently been considered polyphyletic as evidenced by a lot of molecular phylogenetic analyses, and as a result, it has been distributed into a new phylum and four pending subphyla and the term “zygomycetous fungi” is used for those members traditionally included in the classical phylum Zygmycota.

Relationships of the insect-pathogenic order Entomophthorales (Zygomycota, Fungi) based on phylogenetic analyses of nuclear small subunit ribosomal DNA sequences (SSU rDNA).
TLDR
Nuclear characters (large nuclei containing conspicuous condensed chromatin and lack of a prominent nucleolus) were of predictive value for the monophyly of the family Entomophthoraceae.

TLDR
Some genera of Entomophthorales suggest that the associations between fungal pathogens and their insect hosts appear to be shifting away from pathogenicity and towards nonlethal parasitism.
Molecular phylogenetics of the Chytridiomycota supports the utility of ultrastructural data in chytrid systematics
TLDR
A phylogeny of ribosomal DNA sequences coding for the small subunit gene of 54 chytrids, with emphasis on sampling the largest order, the Chytridiales, revealed homoplasy in several developmental and zoosporangial characters and suggested that the divergence times of these groups may be ancient.
Molecular phylogeny of parasitic zygomycota (Dimargaritales, zoopagales) based on nuclear small subunit ribosomal DNA sequences.
TLDR
The 18S rDNA phylogeny is mostly consistent with traditional phenotypic-based classification schemes of the Fungi, as reflected by low bootstrap and decay index support for virtually all internal nodes uniting ordinal and superordinal taxa.
PCR-RFLP is used to investigate relations among species in the entomopathogenic genera Eryniopsis and Entomophaga
TLDR
The results support the idea that morphology of primary conidia is of major importance in defining entomophthoralean genera and show that such studies can be conducted with species that have not been isolated, if fungal-filled cadavers can be obtained.

TLDR
The ecologically and economically important arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, crucial in the ecology and physiology of land plants, and the endocytobiotic fungus, Geosiphon pyriformis, are phylogenetically analysed by their small subunit (SSU) rRNA gene sequences and placed into a new monophyletic phylum, the Glomeromycota.
