Moraes, A. M. L., M. Corrado, V. L. Holanda, G. L. Costa, M. Ziccardi, R. de Lourenço-de-Oliveira & P. C. Oliveira. Aspergillus from Brazilian mosquitoes - I. Genera Aedes and Culex from Rio de Janiero State, Mycotaxon 78: 413-422. 2001.

ABSTRACT: As part of an ongoing survey of potential biological control fungi from insects in Brazil. aspergilli were isolated from 625 mosquitoes belonging to 17 species in the genera Aedes and Culex. Two hundred and fifteen isolates belonging to 17 Aspergillus species were found. Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus nidulans were the most frequently isolated species. Two other species, Aspoergillus fischerianus and Aspergillus heteromorphus were new records for insects. The macro- and microcharacteristics of the Brazilian isolates are compared to those in previously published descriptions. The habitat and geographical distribution of these fungi in Brazil is reviewed.
