Ophiocordyceps stylophora (Ophiocordycipitaceae) in Poland: new localities and host species

Piotr Chachuła, Grzegorz Vončina, Piotr Stanczak

Abstract


Ophiocordyceps stylophora, a rare fungus species in Europe, was first recorded in one locality in Poland in 2011. This paper concerns 33 specimens found between 2011 and 2015 in 23 new localities in five areas. Amongst the described specimens, one was found on the Tenebrionidae beetle, and others grew on Elateridae larvae. For the first time, Tenebrionidae larvae have been observed as hosts of O. stylophora. Five new positions have been located in the southern part of Poland in the area of Oszast and Reberce nature reserves, Babia Góra and Roztocze national parks, and one has been found in the northern part of Poland, in the Elbląg Upland Landscape Park.
