A new and widely distributed species of Pseudoarachniotus

SUMMARY Three genera of the Gymnoascaceae are described and discussed. Gymnascella, a genus generally ignored since it was established, includes three species transferred from Arachniotus: G.Expand

Survey of keratinophilic fungi inhabiting Passer domesticus in two districts of Orissa, India
The distribution patterns of keratinophilic fungi isolated from Passer domesticus of a coastal and an intercoastal district were compared with respect to three parameters, season, age and sex and Chrysosporium tropicum and Rollandina hyalinospora showed the highest frequency of occurrence. Expand
