The composition and food habits of insects visiting fungi of two Dictyophora species, D. indusiata(Vent. & Pers.) and D. duplicata Fisch, were examined in Furano, northern Japan, and in Kyoto, central Japan. As well as field work being carried out, the quantity and the viability of spores in the recta of drosophilid and muscid flies were examined in vitro. Although the composition of insects varied locally and temporally, most of the insects were observed to feed on gleba, which contains spores… Expand

Coleopteran Insects Collected from the Fruiting Bodies of Dictyophora spp. (Phallaceae) in a Bornean Tropical Rainforest
TLDR
B beetles collected from the fruiting bodies of Dictyophora spp. Expand
Spore Dispersal of Fetid Lysurus mokusin by Feces of Mycophagous Insects
TLDR
Nocturnal earwigs and diurnal flies probably play important roles in dispersal of L. mokusin spores, and dispersal via feces may be an important common dispersal mechanism for fungal reproductive tissue. Expand
Insect feeding on spores of a bracket fungus, Elfvingia applanata (Pers.) Karst. (Ganodermataceae, Aphyllophorales)

  • Ecological Research
  • 1999
TLDR
Insects visiting sporocarps of Elfvingia applanata, a wood-rotting bracket fungus, were examined in Kyoto, central Japan and it is suggested that Mycodrosophila flies may act as spore-dispersal agents for E. Applanata. Expand
The preference of Morulina alata (Collembola: Neanuridae) feeding on some fungal sporocarps and the effects of passage through the gut on spores
TLDR
The results suggest that dispersal of intact spores of I. fastigiata and M.pura after ingestion by M. alata is possible, and whether spores are damaged during gut passage in the laboratory remains to be studied. Expand
Spore dissemination by mycophagous adult drosophilids
TLDR
It is suggested that adult drosophilid flies, but not other dipterans, can transport fungal spores, although a greater number of colorless spores generally damaged than colored ones. Expand
Diversity and host associations of dipteran insects exploiting fungal fruiting bodies in Hokuriku, central Japan
TLDR
The diversity and host associations of dipteran insects exploiting fungal fruiting bodies in Hokuriku region, central Japan, from 2012 to 2015 were clarified and the faunal similarity at the family level was relatively high between central and northern areas of Japan. Expand
Soil burrowing Muscina angustifrons (Diptera: Muscidae) larvae excrete spores capable of forming mycorrhizae underground
TLDR
In the infection experiments, ectomycorrhizal fungal spores applied in the vicinity of underground host-plant roots were more effective in forming ectomyCorrhiza than those applied to the ground surface, suggesting that belowground transportation of spores by M. angustifrons larvae could enhance ectomy Corrhiza formation. Expand
No evidence for a Ganoderma spore dispersal mutualism in an obligate spore-feeding beetle Zearagytodes maculifer.
TLDR
The overall evidence argued against the spore dispersal mutualism hypothesis, suggesting that Z. maculifer can potentially exert a negative, if vanishingly small, fitness effect on its host fungus G. cf. Expand
The interrelationship of mycophagous small mammals and ectomycorrhizal fungi in primeval, disturbed and managed Central European mountainous forests
TLDR
Mycophagy can be considered to contribute to nutrition of small forest mammals, to play a pivotal role for forest regeneration and functioning by providing mycorrhizal inoculum to tree seedlings and to be vital for reproduction and diversity of the still poorly known hypogeous fungi. Expand
Suhomyces drosophilae sp. nov., isolated from Drosophila flies feeding on a stinkhorn mushroom.
TLDR
Data support the proposal of Suhomyces drosophilae as a novel species, with DGY3T as the holotype and CBS 16329T and MCC 1871T as ex-type strains. Expand
