We collected leaves of and and roots of from various sites in Korea.
The leaf and root samples were surface-sterilized and endophytic fungi were isolated. Fungal isolates were identified based on
their morphological characteristics and a phylogenetic analysis of internal transcribed spacer regions, large subunit regions, and
the β-tubulin gene. Consequently, we identified five species of endophytic fungi, namely , Fusarium
sterilihyphosum, , , and . These species have not been previously
reported in Korea and we report them here with descriptions and illustrations.
