Summary

Colony interactions and mycoparasitism betweenAcremonium furcatum and ten species of Aspergillus were studied in dual cultures. It was observed thatA. furcatum overgrew the colonies of all the ten species of Aspergillus studied. During the mycoparasitic interactions frequent coiling, penetration and growth of hyphae ofA. furcatum inside the conidiophores of six species of Aspergillus were observed.
