Virus Transmission by Fungi
A number of viruses are known to be transmitted by soil-inhabiting fungi. The fungal vectors belong to two classes of obligate parasites: the Chytridiomycetes with the family Olpidiaceae and the Plasmodiophoromycetes with the family Plasmodiophoraceae. The two classes can be distinguished by their zoospores, the former possessing one long flagellum and the latter two flagella of different lengths.
