Monoblepharidomycetes
Monoblepharis polymorpha growing on a sesame seed in water collected from a vernal pool near Orono, Maine. Shown are the spiny, brownish resting spores sitting on top the empty oogonia. On the sides of the oogonia are empty antheridia.

Members of the Monoblepharidomycetes have a filamentous thallus that is either extensive or simple and unbranched. They frequently have a holdfast at the base. In contrast to other taxa in their phylum, some reproduce using autospores, although many do so through zoospores. Oogamous sexual reproduction may also occur.[4]

In addition to the type genus, the order Monoblepharidales includes Harpochytrium and Oedogoniomyces.[4]

Taxonomy[edit]

Based on the work of "The Mycota: A Comprehensive Treatise on Fungi as Experimental Systems for Basic and Applied Research"[5] and synonyms from "Part 1- Virae, Prokarya, Protists, Fungi".[6]
