Corallochytrium is a single-celled eukaryote which was found in coral reef lagoons of the Lakshadweep islands of the Arabian sea. Although it is an opisthokont, its closest relatives in that group are not clear; at its discovery it was not known whether it was more closely related to animals or fungi. Newer research indicates it is part of Holozoa.
