The order Chytridiales is the largest and most diverse of five orders in phylum Chytridiomycota. Rhizophydium is one of two genera in the Chytridiales with more than 220 described species. Because thallus characters used in classical descriptions of Rhizophydium species often intergrade into other species, as well as other genera, species distinctions frequently are unclear. Species often are delimited solely on substrate or host; many described species consequently may be synonymous. On the… CONTINUE READING
