THE Trichomycetes are a group of primitive fungi which, with a few exceptions, live attached by holdfasts to the gut linings of arthropods. We have encountered two Trichomycetes, Rubetella culicis (Tuzet et Manier, 1947) and R. sp., inhabiting the rectums of mosquito larvæ in California; both these fungi have been found infesting several species of mosquitoes.
