Dimargaris cristalligena RSA 468 is a mycoparasite from the subphylum Kickxellomycotina, formerly of the Zygomycota. A member of the Dimargaritales, an order which currently has been poorly sampled for genomes, this species is approved for the 1000 Fungal Genomes project. The parasite is grown on Cokeromyces recurvatus, a member of the Mucoromycotina.

D. cristalligena represents one of many diverse taxa that are of high interest for the 1000 Fungal Genomes project. It has been selected as part of a Fungal single-cell genome sequencing pilot project.
