Ecology of Symbiotes of Larval Black Flies (Diptera: Simuliidae): Distribution, Diversity, and Scale

To examine fundamental aspects of the ecology of symbioses in flowing-water systems, larval black flies are used as hosts and various fungi, nematodes, and protists as symbiotes, focusing on aspects of distribution, diversity, and scale.

Hongos entomopatógenos en la provincia de Misiones: Revisión

There are scarce studies on EPF in Misiones province compared to other provinces in Argentina and Brazil, and it was concluded that the knowledge of biodiversity of this group and the potential use in biocontrol of pest is limited.

Evaluating the Effects of Fungicides and other Pesticides on Non-Target Gut Fungi and their Aquatic Insect Hosts

Using nanofiltration membranes for the recovery of phosphorous with a second type of technology for the Recovery of nitrogen is suggest to be a viable process.

Insect Bite–Associated Invasive Fungal Infections

Infections were typically misdiagnosed, and 68% had necrotizing features, often requiring amputation or extensive surgery, and both immunocompetent and immunosuppressed patients were affected.



The effect of temperature and host species on the development of the trichomycete Smittium culisetae (Zygomycota).

We examined the growth and development of the trichomycete Smittium culisetae (Harpellales: Legeriomycetaceae) in the larval hosts Simulium vittatum Zetterstedt (Diptera: Simuliidae) and Aedes

Laboratory investigations of trichomycete prevalence, abundance and fecundity in a Smittium-simuliid model.

Smittium, the most speciose genus of the "gut fungi" (Zygomycota: Trichomycetes), is found attached to the hindgut cuticle of larval aquatic Diptera. Smittium spp. colonize several host families

Prevalence of the trichomycete fungus Harpella melusinae (Harpellales: Harpellaceae) in larval black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae) across a heterogeneous environment

Ecological conditions can serve as predictors of the prevalence of H. melusinae in larvae of Simulium tuberosum cytospecies “A” was highest in acidic streams with low conductivity, whereas H.Melusinee colonized larvae ofSimulium verecundum most frequently in slower-moving streams.

The microdistribution of the trichomycete Smittium culisetae in the hindgut of the black fly host Simulium vittatum

Examination of the distribution of hyphae of the trichomycete fungus Smittium culisetae in the hindgut of a larval black fly found its prevalence and relative abundance to be highest in the posterior colon, followed by the rectum.

Context‐dependent symbiosis between black flies (Diptera: Simuliidae) and trichomycete fungi (Harpellales: Legeriomycetaceae)

The trichomyceteblack fly relationship represents a rare case of symbiosis shifting among three states: commensalistic when larvae are well fed, mutualisticWhen larvae are starved, and parasitic in adults.

An Investigation of Harpellales (Trichomycetes) in New York State Blackflies (Diptera: Simuliidae)

The successful laboratory infection of blackfly larvae with in vitro cultured Smittium simulii, and production of H. melusinae and G. homothallica trichospores from cysts dissected from the ovaries of infected flies are reported.

Seasonality of trichomycetes in larval black flies from South Carolina, USA

The seasonality of trichomycete colonization of larval black flies was investigated in three streams in northwestern South Carolina, with significant differences found in the seasonal prevalence of Harpella melusinae, Simuliomyces microsporus, and Paramoebidium spp.

Distribution and species diversity of trichomycete gut fungi in aquatic insect larvae in two Rocky Mountain streams

periodic sampling of larvae over a 6-week summer period showed that some gut fungi are widely distributed in their respective host types, whereas other fungal species are more localized.

Bionomics, axenic culture, and substrate-related variation in trichospores of Smittium megazygosporum

Smittium megazygosporum, previously known only from southern France, was collected in South Carolina, USA, indicating a Holarctic distribution and zygospores, the largest known for the genus, were found in chironomids co-occurring with the black fly host.
