Rhizomucor is a genus of fungi in the
family. The widespread genus contains six species. "Rhizomucor parasiticus", the species originally selected as the type, is now considered synonymous with "Rhizomucor pusillus".
Dicranophora is a genus of two mold species in the family
. It was circumscribed by German mycologist Joseph Schröter in 1886. The type species is "Dicranophora fulva", a yellow mold that grows on the fruit bodies of bolete mushrooms.
Rhizopus arrhizus is a fungus of the family
, characterized by sporangiophores that arise from nodes at the point where the rhizoids are formed and by a hemispherical columella. It is the most common cause of mucormycosis in humans and occasionally infects other animals.
Rhizopus oligosporus is a fungus of the family
and is a widely used starter culture for the production of tempeh at home and industrially. As the mold grows it produces fluffy, white mycelia, binding the beans together to create an edible "cake" of partly catabolized soybeans. The domestication of the microbe is thought to have occurred in Indonesia several centuries ago.
Parakaria is a cassava fermented alcoholic beverage Amerindians of Guyana. Like other cassava alcoholic beverages, parakaria is made by dual fermenting cassava (a large starchy root), which involves the use of an amylolytic mold (Rhizopus sp.,
, Zygomycota) by chewing it.
are a family of fungi of the order Mucorales, characterized by having the thallus not segmented or ramified. Pathogenic genera include "Absidia", "Apophysomyces", "Mucor", "Rhizomucor", and "Rhizopus". According to a 2008 estimate, the family contains 25 genera and 129 species.
Mucor plumbeus is a fungus in the family
(subphylum Mucoromycotina) that is very common, abundant and distributed worldwide. "Mucor plumbeus" is not known to be a plant or animal pathogen; however it is able to elicit an immune response in humans by activating the complement system. This species is commonly found in various types of soils over a range of pH, although alkaline soils seem more conducive to its growth. It is also known from the roots of wheat, oat and barley. In addition, "M. plumbeus" is a common fungal contaminant of indoor built environments. This species shares many similarities with "M. racemosus", another fungus that belongs to the family
which is known to cause mucormycosis. "Mucor plumbeus" is a common spoilage agent of cheese, apples, apple cider and yogurt.
This species is associated with "Apophysomyces elegans", a member of family "
". Despite the significant differences of morphological characteristics of sporangia and the manner of sporangium formation, these two species are associated, usually in medical literature, due to similar disease manifestation in human: cutaneous or subcutaneous infections. Infections involving these two species ("S. vasiformis" and "A. elegans") cause rapid necrotizing vasculitis that leads to thrombosis and tissue necrosis in organisms’ vascular lumen.
The order includes 12-13 families, 56 genera and approximately 300 species. Mucoralean classification has traditionally been based on morphological, developmental, and ecological characters. Recently, molecular data have revealed that some aspects of traditional classification are quite artificial. For example, the
is believed to be polyphyletic, as are the Thamnidiaceae, Chaetocladiaceae and Radiomycetaceae. Some of the genera, (including "Mucor", "Absidia" and "Backusella") appear to be polyphyletic. Today, the traditional system is still largely in use, as further studies are needed to reconcile morphological and molecular concepts of families and genera.
Dicranophora fulva is a mold of the family
. The species was described as new to science in 1886 by German mycologist Joseph Schröter, who first discovered it near Baden in 1877. Its species name is derived from the Latin "fulvus" "brown". The yellow mold has been reported from Europe and the United States. Although it is wide-ranging, it is not common. It grows exclusively on the decaying fruit bodies of boletales. Known hosts include "Suillus bovinus", "S. cavipes", "S. grevillei", "Paxillus involutus", "Chroogomphus rutilus", and "Leccinum scabrum". It was not recorded after 1935 until Hermann Voglmayr and Irmgard Krisei-Greilhuber encountered it on a fungal field trip in southeastern Styria in 1994. Initially unable to identify it, they solved the mystery after checking older literature.
"Lichtheimia corymbifera" was originally described as "Mucor corymbifer" in 1884 by Lichtheim from clinical isolations in Wrocław, Poland. At the time of the description, the species epithet, "corymbifer" was attributed to Cohn. In 1903, the fungus was transferred to the mucoralean genus "Lichtheimia" (honoring Lichtheim) by Jules Vuillemin as "L. corymbifera". In 1912 the species was again transferred by Saccardo and Trotter to the genus "Absidia" as "A. corymbifera" where it remained for most of the 20th century. Alastruey-Izquierdo and colleagues in 1991 transferred the species to the genus "Mycocladus", described originally by Beauverie in 1900. The type of "Mycocladus" has since been shown to be a co-culture with elements that appear to be conspecific with "Absidia" van Tieghem (1876). Thus the oldest available name for the fungus is "Lichthemia corymbifera". Although conventionally treated in the family
, the erection of a new family to accommodate the genus "Lichtheimia", the "Lichtheimiaceae", has been proposed.
