Taxonomy and Phylogeny

Mucor includes at least 39 species, belonging to phylum zygomycota, order Mucorales, Mucoraceae family. M. racemosus was first described and named by Bulliard in 1791.1 It is one of the earliest species people discovered in soil and was isolated long time ago——as early as 1886.2M. racemosus has several synonyms such as Calyptromyces globosus, Circinomucor sphaerosporus, M.dimorphosporus f. sphaerosporus, M. globosus, M. macrosporus, M. sphaerosporus and so on. This species is closely related to M. mucedo and M.rouxianus, since they all belong to the same genus and share lots of similar characters.
