New record of Beauveria pseudobassiana from Morocco
Two species of Beauveria were identified from isolates obtained from endemic Argania spinosa forests in Morocco, using both morphological characteristics and molecular data. Although isolates exhibited similar reproductive structures, ITS-rDNA based phylogenetic analysis grouped the Moroccan isolates into two clades with known sequences of either B. bassiana or B. pseudobassiana. Morphological comparison of the colonies distinguished the two groups of isolates, in full agreement with the ITS phylogenetic analysis. Beauveria pseudobassiana is recorded for the first time in Morocco.
