A. Braun, 1851
The chytrids are the most primitive of the fungi. Many chytrids are found in fresh water. There are approximately 1,000 chytrid species, in 127 genera, distributed among 5 orders.
Some chytrid species are known to kill amphibians in large numbers. The actual process, however, is unknown.
