Agriosomyces was identified in 2020 as a part of a collaborative isolation effort that targeted a wide range of wild and zoo-kept herbivores (Hanafy et al, 2020). Like several other genera that have been described to date, Agriosomyces has a monocentric sporangium, filamentous rhizomycelium and monoflagellated zoospores.

The genus name, Agriosomyces, is derived from the Greek word for wild: Agrios. This is because Agriosomyces was isolated from a wild Mouflon sheep and a wild Boer goat.
