Zou, Xiao, Aiying Liu, Zongqi Liang, Yanfeng Han & Maofa Yang. Hirsutella liboensis, a new entomopathogenic species affecting Cossidae (Lepidoptera) in China. Mycotaxon 111: 39–44. 2010.

ABSTRACT: Hirsutella liboensis was isolated from the larva of Cossidae (Lepidoptera) in Libo Natural Reserves, Guizhou Province. The fungus produces fasciculate synnemata and mono- and polyphialidic conidiogenous cells with necks twisted in two or three helical turns. Conidia are one-celled or (rarely) one-septate, fusiform or like orange segments that are enveloped in a mucous sheath. Morphological characters and phylogenetic analyses of ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 sequences support this fungus as a new species.

KEYWORDS: Cordyceps, taxonomy, entomopathogen
