Entomophthorales (class Zygomycetes) An order of fungi in which the sporangium functions as a single conidium and is typically discharged forcibly at maturity. Most are mycelial and coenocytic. Many species are parasitic in insects or other animals; some can parasitize desmids or fern prothalli, while others are saprotrophic.
