Ambrosia fungi are a diverse group of species associated with ambrosia beetles, insects that rely on fungal agriculture to survive. They are currently known to be in two major groups: Raffaelea in the Ophiostomatales, and several genera within the Microascales, including Ambrosiella, Meredithiella, and Phialophoropsis in the Ceratocystidaceae and Fusarium. This site aims to be a source of information for all known species in both genera as well as a resource for methods for the successful isolation and identification of these fungi from beetle specimens.
