Cambaraspora n. gen. Bojko et al.

Index Fungorum number: FN636241; Facesoffungi number: FoF

Genus description: Members of this genus infect the muscle tissue of aquatic crustacean hosts and undergo merogony and sporogony in a sporophorous vesicle. The spores are diplokaryotic and include 19–21 coils of the polar filament. The polaroplast is bi-laminar, with an electron dense upper layer and electron lucent lower layer. The spores are cucumiform in shape. Multiple developing life stages are evident in a single sporophorous vesicle. Genetic relatedness to the type species should be considered if placing a novel member into this genus.
