Gams, Walter & Amy Y. Rossman. What is Oospora oryzetorum? Mycotaxon 92: 339-340. 2005.

ABSTRACT: Oospora oryzetorum was described in 1916 on rice glumes but has never been seen since then. Specimens labeled as this fungus all apparently from the original collection were examined. The only structures on these specimens that could be interpreted as this fungus are starch granules originating from the host. It is concluded that these structures of plant origin were mistakenly described as this fungus and that Oospora oryzetorum does not pose a threat to rice cultivation.
