ABSTRACT : Mold contamination is one of the detrimental factors affecting sawdust media-based shiitake cultivation in greenhouses. During mold monitoring of indoor air of greenhouses, several fungi were isolated. Among them, Aspergillus pulverulentus and Cosmospora butyri were found to be new in Korea and Lecanicillium psalliotae and L. antillanum were known in Korea without taxonomic validation. In this study the morphological characteristics and phylogenetic analysis based on the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) rDNA region or β-tubulin gene of the four identified species were described.
