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.
