Liebetanzomyces was the eleventh anaerobic fungal genus to be described. Liebetanzomyces is morphologically similar to Piromyces, Buwchfawromyces, Pecoramyces and Oontomyces due to it having a monocentric thallus and monoflagellated zoospores. In contrast, on the molecular level, it is similar to the polycentric genus Anaeromyces. The genus Liebetanzomyces was named by Joshi et al in 2018 … Continue reading Next featured genus: Liebetanzomyces

Feramyces was the tenth anaerobic fungal genus to be described. Like Neocallimastix, it has a monocentric thallus and polyflagellated zoospores. The type species is called F. austinii to honor Mr. Jim Austin who sampled wild animals. Read more about Fermayces here.
As of January 2022, there will be a monthly post listing any newly published scientific articles relating to anaerobic fungi. To kick things off, with this first post we have 11 papers to share with you which have been published since the last quarter of 2021 until now: Voigt, K.; James, T.Y.; Kirk, P.M.; Santiago, … Continue reading Publications – new monthly updates
This year's AFN members directory is the 10 year anniversary edition. The directory is a go to place to find out about who is working on anaerobic fungi world-wide! You can download your own copy from here.

Another anaerobic fungal genus has been described, bringing the total number now up to 20. Paucimyces has monoflagellated zoospores and polycentric thalli with highly branched nucleated filamentous rhizomycelium, a growth pattern encountered in a minority of described anaerobic fungal genera so far. The type species of the genus is Paucimyces polynucleatus. Read more about this … Continue reading Paucimyces – 20th anaerobic fungal genus!
