The Tremellomycetes are a class of dimorphic fungi. Some species have a gelatinous fruiting body or a sacculate parenthesome.[1] There are 3 orders, 11 families, 50 genera, and 377 species in the Tremellomycetes.[2] Tremellomycetes are yeasts, dimorphic taxa, and species that form complex fruiting bodies.[3] Tremellomycetes have 3 orders which can be found in plants, humans, animals. Cystofilobasidiales can be found in plants, Filobasidiella can be found in human bodies and inside insects, and Tremellales can be found on mosses.[4]
