Network analysis of plant parasitic Phytomyxea and potential host plants (shown as plant families following the taxonomy suggested onhttp://www.theplantlist.org, 20.06.2013). Phytomyxids can use alternative host plants during their life cycle. for the majority of species only haphazard reports of the host range are available, while for some agriculturally important species like of Spongospora subterranea, Polymyxa graminis, P. betae, and Plasmodiophora brassicae extensive host range studies are available, leading to a seemingly wider host range of these species. It is noteworthy that, despite this bias, all species for which targeted host range studies exist hosts belonging to monocot and dicot host plants can be found. Pink?=?monocot plant families, Blue?=?dicot plant families, Red font?=?Phytomyxids for which hosts belonging to both the monocot and dicot hosts were described.
