Fungal succession during the 429-day bioremediation was predominated by Rhinocladiella sp., while all fungi which survived in degrading heavy oil were identified as Rhinocladiella sp., Aspergillus sp., Acremonium
sp., and Penicillium sp.
A study of the fungal endophyte Acremonium
coenophialum in the roots of tall rescue seedlings.
zeae is a type of fungus called an endophyte that lives inside the kernels of corn plants, neither harming nor benefiting its host.

Further, tall fescue has a variety of toxicosis syndromes caused by a fungal endophyte (Acremonium
coenophialum), which results in many physiological problems with livestock (Ball et al., 1996).
Renovation of endophyte (Acremonium
coenophialum)-infested tall fescue (Festuca anmdinaceae) pastures with herbicides.
The predominant fungi identified included Acremonium
sp., Alternaria sp., Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus sydowii, Mucor sp., Penicillium sp., Phoma sp., Stachybotrys chartarum, Ulocladium chartarum, and yeasts.
herquei had the highest rate of gelatinous medium liquefaction when compared to other fungal species found on the surface (although the rates for Acremonium
striatisporum and Alternaria alternata were also relatively high).
