Antennopsis ectoparasitic fungi

Antennopsis ectoparasitic fungi

Antennopsis is one of the fungi described in the new Annals of the Entomological Society review paper, which summarizes information gleaned from nearly 100 scientific papers dating as far back as 1914, and offering an up-to-date summary of 34 termite-infesting fungal species. This illustration of Antennopsis‘ life cycle shows how it reproduces asexually and generates spores, called conidia, that land on and stick to the termite’s outer surface, or cuticle.
