|Contribution||Published illustration of superficial fungal infection on fish.|
|Notes||William Arderon. Ainsworth refers to this as "the earliest record of a mycotic disease in a vertebrate" and considers the fungus to be Saprolegnia. Extent of description not given by Ainsworth. Presumably this was not a significant discovery in the evolution of the germ theory.|
