Plasmodiophorid Genera

Although Palm and Burk (1933, Arch. Protistenk. 79: 263) questioned the validity of several of the genera, Braselton (1995, Critical Reviews in Microbiology 21: 263) considered these 10 genera as valid. Approximately 35 species have been described (Karling, 1968, The Plasmodiophorales, 2nd ed., Hafner Publishing, NY). Note that this list does not include any new genera reported after 1 July 2000, or members of the Phagomyxida
