During a survey of the activities of fungi in steamed sweet potato, stored garlic, agricultural by-products for mushroom
cultivation media, and pinewood chips from a pinewood nematode-infected tree, numerous fungal samples were isolated and
identified. This study identified five species that have not been previously reported in Korea, namely Geomyces pannorum,
Neopestalotiopsis javaensis, Penicillium allii, Penicillium chermesinum, and Ophiognomonia setacea. For all identified species, the
cultural features of colonies formed on growth media, their morphological characteristics observed by a light microscope, and
their molecular phylogenetic relationships based on nucleotide sequences of the internal transcribed spacer rDNA region or
calmodulin gene were described.
