Chrysosporium species from the “Baradla” cave in Aggtelek (Biospeologica Hungarica XXIV)

  • Lidia Zeller


Results of mycological examinations executed in the cave “Baradla” of Aggtelek concerning the genusChrysosporium are reported. Author succeeded in isolating from the soil of the caveCh. keratinophilum andCh. evolceanui by the use of the keratin-bait method. Both species are reported for the first time to occur in Hungary.
