While evaluating fungal diversity in fecal and freshwater samples in Korea, three fungal strains,
CNUFC-GHD83-1, CNUFC-RD8126, and CNUFC-YR2-1, were isolated from specific habitats
including grasshopper and rat feces, and freshwater samples in Korea. On the basis of the
morphological characteristics and phylogenetic analysis of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS)
and 28S rDNA, the isolates CNUFC-GHD83-1, CNUFC-RD8126, and CNUFC-YR2-1 were
identified as Albifimbria terrestris, Cephaliophora tropica, and Mariannaea aquaticola,
respectively. These species have not been previously described in Korea.
