de Souza, José Ivanildo, Iracema Helena Schoenlein-Crusius, Luísa Helena dos Santos Oliveira, Norberto Carlos Schoenlein & Sandra Farto Botelho Trufem. Selected species of Mucorales from soil contaminated with toxic metals in São Paulo State, Brazil. Mycotaxon 106: 273-288. 2008.

ABSTRACT: Eleven taxa of Mucorales were isolated from soil-plates made with malt agar amended with 0, 100, 200, 500 or 1,000 mg/L of Pb(NO 3) 2 or Zn(NO 3) 2 and soil collected in an area contaminated with chemicals. The taxa isolated (Mucor bainieri, M. circinelloides f. circinelloides, M. circinelloides f. lusitanicus, M. circinelloides f. janssenii, M. hiemalis f. hiemalis, M. hiemalis f. luteus, M. racemosus f. racemosus, Zygorhynchus moelleri, Absidia cylindrospora v. cylindrospora, Rhizopus arrhizus v. arrhizus and Cunninghamella phaeospora v. phaeospora) are described, discussed, and illustrated. This is a second world record for Mucor bainieri, previously isolated only once in India, and the first record this species from Brazil.
