Abstract

Cordyceps myrmecophila Cesati was isolated for culture from discharged ascospores. The ascospores germinated only in high speed shaking condition in liquid medium but not in static solid culture media. The pellets harvested from liquid medium were cultured on PDA supplemented with sugars. Trehalose was found to be the only sugar to accelerate colony growth and increased stalk number formation of C. myrmecophila. None of the stroma-like stalks reached maturity to produce ascus or perithecium. However, the ITS-I and ITS-II rDNA sequence of cultured pellets were identical to those of the specimens.
