ABSTRACT

Two new species for science, Cordyceps kurijimeaensis and C. nirtolii (Clavicipitaceae, Ascomycetes), collected from the forests of the Munsyari Region of the Himalayan hills (Uttarakhand State, India) are described and illustrated. C. kurijimeaensis has the same host, larvae of Hepialus armoricanus, as does Cordyceps (=Ophiocordyceps) sinensis, and C. nirtolii was found on Melanotus communis. Morphology and other diagnostic characteristics show a close relationship between C. kurijimeaensis and C. nirtolii. ITS sequences show a close phylogenetic relationship with members of Clavicipitaceae clade C, strongly supporting the classification of these as new species.
