The present study reports 16 species of Ascomycota that were previously unknown in Korea, namely Acremonium
cellulolyticus (KNU14-25), (KNU14-15), (KNU14-9), (KNU
14-18-1), (KNU15-3), (KNU14-16), (KNU14-
8), (KNU14-18-2), (KNU15-2), (KNU14-12), Pochonia
suchlasporia (KNU15-6), (KNU15-8), (KNU15-1), (KNU14-23-1), Xylogone
sphaerospora (KNU15-7), and (KNU15-5). These fungal species were isolated from soil samples collected
from various regions of Korea and identified based on their morphological characteristics and rDNA internal transcribed spacer
sequence data. Full descriptions and illustrations for each species are provided.
