We are currently preparing a section on marine Microsporidia, and are therefore seeking assistance from collegaues in our search for relevant publsihed papers. Please send pdf files to Gareth Jones. 

CURRENT NUMBER OF MARINE FUNGI:

Phyla:  7
Classes: 22
Orders:  88
Families: 226
Genera: 

769

Species:  1,901

 

The above includes the microsporidia

Microsporidia
Genera: 62
Species: 138

 

Fungal-like taxa: under revision

 

The above include fungi documented from sporulating material in the intertidal-submergedmaterial in the sea (drift and attached wood, leaves, fruits, pneumatophores), those isolated from sea water,  deep sea and mangrove sediments, endophytes isolated from algae, corals and submerged parts of mangrove plants and those parastic on planknot on seagrasses. 

Marine fungi are an ecologically diverse group which belong to the phyla Aphelidiomycota, Ascomycota, Basidiomycota, Blastocladiomycota, Chytridiomycota, and Mucoromycota. They grow on numerous substrata such as decaying wood and leaves, algae, coral, calcareous tubes of molluscs, animals, and found in sand, muds, soils, sediments. Marine fungi play a substantial components role in nutrient cycling and are a critical source of natural products. The Halosphaeriaceae is the largest family of marine species with 141 species in 59 genera. The Aphelidiomycota currently includes one marine species Pseudoaphelidium drebesii.

Introduction page

Readers are asked to contribute to the website by submitting comments, updates, new taxa to the senior curators. See the attached e mail addresses. 

Readers are invited to draft species descriptions for marine fungi and submit to Gareth Jones: torperadgj@gmail.com

Purpose of webpage

  • To provide the distributions of marine fungi.
  • To supply online information on classification, description, types and location. Each species is described with illustrations.
  • To provide higher classification of marine fungi.

How to search for genus/species

  • Please use the search Box atthe top of this page to find details of species
  1. Type the genus name in the blank box
  2. Press search. The species name will then appear as blue font
  3. Now click on the species name (blue font) to access the description.

Recommendation: As the same genus/ species have many distributions on the map. If the user is willing to access another genus. Search by typing genus name in the blank is recommended.
