During a survey of undiscovered taxa in Korea, two zygomycete fungal isolates, EML-BT5-1 and EML-BT5-2, were
isolated from the seed of a pumpkin () fruit in Korea. Based on their morphological characteristics and a sequence
analysis of four genes, ITS1-5.8S-ITS2, 18S, 28S rDNA, and EF-1α, the isolates were confirmed to be monosporum
in the family Syncephalastraceae. To our knowledge, the zygomycete fungal species has not been previously
described in Korea.
