Fungi are the most common pathogens of insects received by our diagnostic laboratory each year. This is probably due to their easy recognition and widespread distribution. Entomogenous fungi attack a variety of terrestrial and aquatic insects, as well as other invertebrates, and, in some cases, even vertebrates. Although fungi were responsible for some of the earliest known insect diseases, basic studies on most entomogenous forms are still incomplete.
