Abstract

Eight species of Harpellales and three species of Eccrinales (Zygomycota: Trichomycetes) were found associated with the digestive tract of arthropods from terrestrial and aquatic environments in the central Amazon region of Brazil. New species of Harpellales include: Harpella amazonica check for this species in other resources , Smittium brasiliense check for this species in other resources , Genistellospora tropicalis check for this species in other resources in Simuliidae larvae check for this species in other resources and Stachylina paucispora check for this species in other resources in Chironomidae larvae. Axenic cultures of S. brasiliense were obtained. Probable new species of Enterobryus check for this species in other resources (Eccrinales), Harpella check for this species in other resources , and Stachylina (Harpellales) are described but not named. Also reported are the previously known species of Eccrinales, Passalomyces compressus check for this species in other resources and Leidyomyces attenuatus check for this species in other resources in adult Coleoptera (Passalidae), and Smittium culisetae check for this species in other resources and Smittium aciculare check for this species in other resources (Harpellales) in Culicidae and Simuliidae larvae, respectively. Comments on the distribution of some of these fungi and their hosts in the Neotropics are provided.
