Entomophthorales

Conidia of Conidiobolus coronatus, from the University of Adelaide.

Belongs within: Fungi.

The Entomophthorales are a group of fungi that are mostly parasitic on insects and arachnids, though some species of Conidiobolus are known as pathogens on humans.

Characters (from Adl et al. 2012): Filamentous, primarily without septa; sexual reproduction by thick-walled zygospore, strictly homothallic, where known; asexual reproduction by conidia formed by blastosporogenesis; conidia forcibly discharged and often form secondary conidia.
