An endophytic fungus, Rhizosphaera pini strain NIE7426, was isolated from the sub-alpine coniferous tree Abies nephrolepis in Mt. Nochu of Gangwon Province. It was characterized by macroscopic and microscopic features, as well as the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) 1, 2 and 5.8S sequences. All morphological and molecular features support the first recognition of this taxon in Korea. In addition, this study adds A. nephrolepis as a host plant R. pini.
