We thank Josh Fierer and Jesus Gonzales for providing human Rhinosporidium tissue blocks, Mike Levy for the canine nasal polyp used for consensus PCR, Kristin Arkush for the Dermocystidium salmonis and Rosette agent DNA, and Robin Gutell for the mask used for phylogenetic analysis of the DRIPs clade. Bob Metzenberg, Sara Fulz, Larry Mirels, and the staff of the clinical microbiology laboratories at Stanford and the Palo Alto VA hospitals supplied fungal isolates for testing broad-range 18S rDNA primers.
