FONSECA, Quézia Ribeiro; SARQUIS, Maria Inez de Moura; HAMADA, Neusa  and  ALENCAR, Yamile Benaion. Occurrence of filamentous fungi in Simulium goeldii Cerqueira & Nunes de Mello (diptera: simuliidae) larvae in central Amazonia, Brazil. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2008, vol.39, n.2, pp.282-285. ISSN 1517-8382.

The family Simuliidae is the host of simbiontes fungi that inhabit the digestive tracts of arthropods. This paper reports the presence of fungi in Simulium goeldii Cerqueira & Nunes de Mello larvae in Amazonia. We observed that the larvae are a good component of aquatic systems to isolate filamentous fungi.

Keywords : Black fly; Simulium; aquatic insects; Fungi.
