During a survey of fungal diversity in insect guts in Korea, two fungal strains, EML-PGH2 and EML-PUKI88, were
isolated from the gut of grasshopper and soldier fly larvae inhabiting the bulrush plants at a pond located in the Chonnam
National University Arboretum, Gwangju, Korea. Based on their morphological characteristics and a phylogenetic analysis of the
internal transcribed spacer (ITS1 and ITS2) and 5.8S rDNA sequences, the strains were identified as . To our
knowledge, the zygomycete species B. has not been previously described in Korea.
