Abstract

A strain of a novel mucoralean fungus was isolated from a nest of the invasive paper wasp, . Phylogenetic analysis based on the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions and 5.8S rRNA gene sequences, along with physiological tests, revealed that this strain represents a novel species within the genus . The novel species also includes a representative that had previously been characterized as part of the complex. Unlike the type strain of , these two strains can grow at 37 °C and sporulate at 35 °C. Here, we present a partial resolution of the species complex and propose the novel species sp. nov. to accommodate the isolate; the type strain of is F53 ( = NRRL 54520 = UAMH 11442 = CBS 130359).
