Phylogeny of the genus Pythium is analyzed based on sequences of the large subunit ribosomal DNA D1/D2 region and cytochrome oxidase II gene region of many Pythium isolates and comprehensive species of related taxa belonging to the Oomycetes. The phylogenetic trees show that the genus Pythium is greatly divergent group and divided into five well-supported monophyletic clades. Each clade is supported by sporangial morphology such as globose, ovoid, elongated or filamentous shapes. Based on the phylogeny and morphology, the genus Pythium (s. str.) is emended, and four new genus, Ovatisporangium, Globisporangium, Elongisporangium, Pilasporangium, are described segregating from Pythium.
