Brachymyces megalosporus

I found this fungus attacking and parasitising microscopic animals and described it as a new genus and species in 1980.   I do not believe it has been seen since.    The name means short fungus with the big spores!   This is the only photomicrograph available of this fungus. It is one of the Zygomycota or so I claimed at the time.
