Lambertella corni-maris Höhn., an endophytic fungus that is an unrecorded species in Korea, was isolated and cultured from alpine coniferous Korean fir. The Lambertella sp. was found in Korean pine in Yeongwol-gun but no Lambertella spp. were recorded elsewhere in Korea. In this study, the morphological characteristics and molecular barcode sequence of L. corni-maris were compared to its related species. We tried to explain the cultural characteristics and microstructures, such as the conidia of L. corni-maris, compared to closely related taxa and present it.
