  • A fungus was isolated from field soil collected from Daegu, Korea. The colony of the isolated fungus showed short, branched, and light to dark yellow pigments with hyaline, yellowish red to orange brown aerial mycelia. In addition, the fungus produced solitary to aggregated perithecia, ovoid to pyriform, short neck, and asci as well as biseriately arranged ascospores. Phylogenetic analysis using the internal transcribed spacer region and translation elongation factor $1-{\alpha}$ sequences and morphological characteristics identified the isolated fungus as Penicillifer diparietisporus, which belongs to the family Nectriaceae. To our knowledge, this is the first report of Penicillifer diparietisporus in Korea.
