The genus Powellomyces was described to accommodate two monocentric chytrid species from soil that develop exogenously and possess zoosporic ultrastructure similar to other members of the order Spizellomycetales. Despite Powellomyces-like chytrids being commonly observed in gross culture, the genus contained only two species. To determine diversity in this group I amassed 49 isolates of Powellomyces-like chytrids, including the cultures upon which species types were based and new isolates from… Expand
Thoreauomyces gen. nov., Fimicolochytrium gen. nov. and additional species in Geranomyces
TLDR
A linear discriminant function analysis of thallus characters was not completely accurate in assigning chytrids to the correct genus or species, thus emphasizing the importance of molecular characters for identifying these taxa. Expand
The Polychytriales ord. nov. contains chitinophilic members of the rhizophlyctoid alliance
TLDR
This order contains Polychytrium, Lacustromyces, Karlingiomyces, two new genera (Arkaya and Neokarlingia) and additional undescribed taxa, which is based on molecular and ultrastructural characters based on phylogenetically mutually supportive characters. Expand
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 undescribedExpand
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. Expand
Phylogeny of Hirsutella species (Ophiocordycipitaceae) from the USA: remedying the paucity of Hirsutella sequence data
TLDR
This work examined 46 isolates of 23 Hirsutella species from the USA, curated by the USDA-ARS Collection of Entomopathogenic Fungal Cultures (ARSEF Culture Collection), that previously had not been molecularly characterized and produced a phylogeny of these organisms. 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
Fayochytriomyces, a new genus within Chytridiales
TLDR
The morphology of culture WJD186 is consistent with features Fay described for C. spinosus, and the zoospore ultrastructures are consistent with the Group I-type Zoospore characters of Chytriomycetaceae (Chytridiales). Expand
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. Expand
6 Chytridiomycota, Monoblepharidomycota, and Neocallimastigomycota
TLDR
This chapter provides an overview of current classification and demonstrates how zoospore ultrastructural characters are applied within a molecular phylogenetic framework in taxonomic revision of zoosporic fungi. Expand
Revisiting the aquatic phycomycete biota of the Douglas Lake region since the time of Dogma and Sparrow
Fredrick K. Sparrow and his students, including Irineo J. Dogma, conducted many surveys of the aquatic phycomycete biota of the Douglas Lake region in Michigan, United States of America. FollowingExpand

A molecular phylogenetic evaluation of the Spizellomycetales
Order Spizellomycetales was delineated based on a unique suite of zoospore ultrastructural characters and currently includes five genera and 14 validly published species, all of which have aExpand
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
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 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
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. Expand
Problematical taxonomic criteria in the Chytridiales: comparative morphology of 10 Entophlyctis sp. isolates
TLDR
The criteria generally used in distinguishing taxa among the Chytridiales are size and structure of the zoospores, sporangium wall ornamentations, discharge papillae and tubes, but a review of the literature reveals that these criteria are not sharply defined but highly variable and unstable for purposes of exact identification. Expand
A molecular phylogeny of the flagellated fungi (Chytridiomycota) and description of a new phylum (Blastocladiomycota).
TLDR
The phylogeny suggests that Chytridiomycota is not monophyletic and there are four major lineages of chytrids: Rozella spp. Expand
Taxonomy and phylogeny of Gliocladium analysed from nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences
TLDR
The results indicate that Gliocladium is polyphyletic and that G. penicillioides, G. roseum, and Trichoderma virens, are generically distinct. Expand

A clade of chytrids found growing on decaying plant tissue and other cellulosic substrates from aquatic habitats and moist soils is designated as a new order, Cladochytriales, which includes four families: Clado Chytrium, Nowakowskiellaceae, Septochytriaceae fam. Expand
Lobulomycetales, a new order in the Chytridiomycota.
