In nature S. megalocarpus is parasitic on Basidiomycetes and a few Ascomycetes (Kovacs and Sundberg, 1999). Benny and O’Donnell (1978) described the ontogeny of sporangia, sporangiospores, and zygospores using light microscopy. The ontogeny of the zygosporogenesis, mainly using electron microscopy, in S. megalocarpus was presented by O’Donnell (1979). Syzygites megalocarpus is unusual in its formation of sporangiospores with spinose walls, a characteristic also shared by Sporodiniella umbellata (Ekpo and Young, 1979)( 2007)
