Fungi developing on dung samples, from a wide range of locations and incubated in moist chambers, were recorded. Highly significant differences were found. Animal dung, and especially that of herbivorous mammals, bears a large number of fungi that are adapted to their specialized substratum. Various adaptations.

Coprophilous fungi

The Bird’s Nest Fungi. The spores themselves survive digestion by being particularly thick-walled, allowing them to germinate in the dung with minimum competition from other organisms. Paraphyses hyaline, very slightly clavate. Eriobolussmooth to minutely verrucose, A good collection of fertile stroma was found on horse dung in the coprophiloys Figs 23.

Fungo with yellowish contents, very slightly clavate. University of Toronto Press. Mycological Papers, Ascomycetes, coprophilous fungi, diversity, species richness. Samples were collected on 6 and 9 July Table 1. Cap with sphaerocysts and setules, the setules ampullate at the base, but not capitate.


Lundqvist and Van Brummelenin their monographic treatments of the Sordariaceae and Ascobolus and Saccobolusnoted some early records but, apart fubgi the collections of Andre de Meijer personal communication and Jahnthere seem to be few recent records of coprophilous fungi from Brazil.

Care was taken to ensure that cultures were not too wet.

Coprophilous fungi – Wikipedia

Coprophilous fungi may be useful indicators of habitat diversity Richardson, Thirty-two species of coprophilous fungi were recorded from seven dung samples collected from the state of Matto Grosso do Sul, Brazil, and incubated in moist chambers.


Spores are biseriate, x Ascospores seriate, Samples were rehydrated and incubated on 1 August on moist paper towelling in plastic boxes with lightly fitting transparent lids, under ambient light and at room temperature ca o C. Coprophilous fungi release their spores to the surrounding vegetation, which is then eaten by herbivores. Details of the fungi found from the collection of samples are vungi and discussed, together with some aspects of the diversity and species richness of the dung habitat in a small area of Brazil.

The spores dungi remain in the animal as the plants are digestedpass through the animal’s intestines and are finally defecated. Since perithecia are very small and immersed, except for the erumpent neck and ostiole, Phomatospora spp.
