MANFRINO, Romina G et al. Contribution to the knowledge of pathogenic fungi of spiders in Argentina: Southernmost record in the world. Rev. argent. microbiol. [online]. 2017, vol.49, n.2, pp.197-200. ISSN 0325-7541.

The aim of this study was to identify entomopathogenic fungi infecting spiders (Araneae) in a protected area of Buenos Aires province, Argentina. The Araneae species identified was Stenoterommata platensis. The pathogens identified were Lecanicillium aphanocladii Zare & W. Gams, Purpureocillium lilacinum (Thom) Luangsa-ard, Houbraken, Hywel Jones & Samson and Ophiocordyceps caloceroides (Berk & M.A. Curtis). This study constitutes the southernmost records in the world and contributes to expanding the knowledge of the biodiversity of pathogenic fungi of spiders in Argentina.
