Taxonomic remark A small group of protists closely allied to the Fungi. Originally described as order (Microsporidies) and treated as Protozoa; later placed in kingdom Fungi in many sources including Kirk et al., 2008, also in IRMNG 2006-2016. IRMNG presently follows the treatment of Ruggiero et al., 2015 in which Microsporidia are returned to the Protozoa. Microsporidia, together with Choanozoa, Fungi and Animalia, form "Supergroup Opisthokonta" according to Ruggiero et al. [details]
