Taxonomic remark Originally described as order (Microsporidies) and treated as a phylum in Protozoa by Cavalier-Smith and Ruggiero et al.; Microsporidia, together with Choanozoa, Fungi and Animalia, form "Supergroup Opisthokonta" in the treatment of Ruggiero et al., 2015. However the group is treated as fungal in other sources. IRMNG presently (2021) follows Wijayawardene et al., 2020 who re-rank Microsporidia as a subphylum within the fungal phylum Rozellomycota. Also note, even when treated as Fungi, Microsporidia are treated under zoological nomenclature (the only fungal group to be so specified), according to a stated exception in the botanical Code (ICNafp 2018, Preamble 8, Articles F.1.1 and 45.1). [details]
