  1. Abstract The increasing number of new fungal species described from all over the world along with the use of genetics to define taxa, has dramatically changed the classification system of early-diverging fungi over the past several decades. The number of phyla established for non-Dikarya fungi has increased from 2 to 17. However, to date, both the classification and phylogeny of the basal fungi are still unresolved. In this article, we review the recent taxonomy of the basal fungi and re-evaluate the relationships among early-diverging lineages of fungal phyla. We also provide information on the ecology and distribution in  Mucoromycota and highlight the impact of chytrids on amphibian populations. Species concepts in Chytridiomycota , Aphelidiomycota , Rozellomycota , Neocallimastigomycota are discussed in this paper. To preserve the current application of the genus Nephridiophaga ( Chytridiomycota : Nephridiophagales ) , a new type species, Nephridiophaga blattellae , is proposed.
