Summary: Zoospores of an estuarine fungus isolated from and tentatively identified as a species of were positively phototactic. Electron microscopy revealed a complex of organelles consisting of a relatively electron opaque, membrane-bounded sac, a lipid droplet and a highly ordered array of membranous tubular units which may have been involved in photoreception. The ribosomes of the zoospores were aggregated into a nuclear cap and separated from the rest of the cytoplasm by mitochondria, the nucleus, membranous sheets and membrane-bounded vesicles. There was a vestigial kinetosome nearly parallel to the functional kinetosome. A Golgi-like body was associated with the nucleus.
