Entophlyctis Fischer 1892; D.J.S. Barr emended and placed in Spizellomycetales; Canad. J. Bot., 58:2380–2394. 1980.

Entophlyctis texana Karling 1941; See Sydowia, 20:109–118. 1967 for 1st published figs. In habit and morphology this species strongly resembles an “orange Endochytrium” that I have found in moribund cells of the aquatic plant Eriocaulon (the habit of Karling’s species) in Maine, New York and Michigan.

Entophlyctis willoughbyi Bradley; Amer. J. Bot., 54:577–582, figs. 1–7, 9. 1967 (fossil) In fossil plant parts; Eocene Green River Formation, Wyoming, USA. I do not recognize fossil species placed into genera with extant members. Some genera in different orders of the Chytridiomycota can be distinguished from each other only with difficulty when alive; it is impossible to say to what order, and thus to what genus a fossilized organism belongs.
