Abstract

During a survey of the fungus flora of soil and leaf litter in the Sultanate of Oman we isolated six orbiliaceous nematode-trapping fungi, Arthrobotrys oligospora, A. multiformis, A. oudemansii, A. javanica, Drechslerella brochopaga, and Gamsylella gephyropaga. All isolates are new records for Oman. The isolate of A. multiformis is the second record of this species world-wide. The isolates are described in detail. The study indicates that A. oudemansii, A. multiformis, and A. javanica are morphologically more variable than so far known.
