Abstract

Trichomycete fungi are associated with digestive tract of black fly larvae. These fungi have not been studied in Brazil, knowing them and their relationship with black flies could be an alternative to control vector populations. The objectives of this study were to survey the Trichomycete fungi associated with larvae of Simulium goeldii check for this species in other resources and S. ulyssesi check for this species in other resources , and to determine if there is specificity and/or difference in the infection rates in these species. Black flies were collected in Central Amazônia, Brazil. Three genera of Trichomycetes were found: Harpella check for this species in other resources , Genistellospora check for this species in other resources and Smittium check for this species in other resources . All these fungi were common to both black fly species.
