The Oomycota contains four distinctive subgroups, three of which are found in the High Arctic, one of which inhabits marine water. The Lagenidiales is a small group of common parasites on algae, fungi, and invertebrates. Species of Lagenidia have been found growing in cells of the marine diatom Coscinodiscus centralis, a common inhabitant of arctic marine waters.
