Mating experiments were performed to, elucidate the distribution of perfect state of Microsporum gypseum complex originated from animals and soils in Korea. A total of 30 strains of M. gypseum complex, composed of 16 from animals and 14 from soils, ere mated with the tester strains of Nannizzia incurvata, N. gypsea and N. fulva. Among 30 strains of M. gypseum complex examined, 16 strains(53.3%) were N. incurvata, 13 strains(43.3%) N. gypsea and 1 strain (3.3%) N. fulva. Among 13 strains of dog isolates, 8 strains(61.5%) were N. incurvata and 5 strains(38.5%) N. gypsea. And each strain isolated from Korean native goat, monkey and albino rat was N. gypsea. Among 14 strains of soil isolates, 8 strains(57.2%) were N. incurvata, 5 strains (35.7%) N. gypsea and 1 strain(7.2%) N. fulva. And -mating type was more frequently observed than +mating type in the strains of N. incurvata and N. gypsea. By this study, N. fulva was isolated the first time in Korea.
