Myzocytium, Haptoglossa, and Gonimochaete (Fungi) in Littoral Marine Nematodes
Three species of lagenidialean (oomycetous) and lagenidioid fungi are described as parasites (parasitoids?) of species of rhabditid nematodes which inhabit littoral marine zones in southeastern Florida. One of these fungal species is described as new, and original descriptions are emended in the other two cases. The ecology, including potential impact on litter decomposition processes, of these marine-occurring zooparasitic fungi is briefly discussed. A key to the lagenidialean and allied fungal zooparasites is presented, complete with a list of annotated major references for each species.
