Scientific classification e
Kingdom: Fungi
Division: Chytridiomycota
Class: Monoblepharidomycetes
J.H. Schaffner 1909[3]
Order: Monoblepharidales

Type species
Monoblepharis spp.
Cornu 1871

Members of the Monoblepharidomycetes have a filamentous thallus that is either extensive or simple and unbranched. They frequently have a holdfast at the base. In contrast to other taxa in their phylum, some reproduce using autospores, although many do so through zoospores. Oogamous sexual reproduction may also occur.[4]

In addition to the type genus, the order Monoblepharidales includes Harpochytrium and Oedogoniomyces.[4]
