Fifty Fusarium isolates were obtained from 20 garden soil samples in Hormozgan province (S Iran). The isolates were identified based on morphological and molecular data. Sequence data were generated for TEF-1αgene, following PCR amplification. Among the identified species, Fusariummangiferae, F.gaditjirrii, and F. decemcellularerepresent new records to the mycobiota of Iran.

Abstract [Persian]

جهت شناسایی گونه‌های مختلف شبه‌جنس فوزاریوم از خاک باغ‌های استان هرمزگان، 20 نمونه خاک جمع‌آوری شد. در این بررسی، 50 جدایه به دست آمد که هر یک براساس مشخصات ریخت‌شناسی و توالی ژن TEF-1α مورد شناسایی قرار گرفتند که در بین آن‌ها، سه گونهFusarium mangiferae،F. gaditjirrii و decemcellulare F. به عنوان یافته جدید از ایران گزارش می‌شوند.
