- The assemblage and abundance of fungal species associated with Hylurgops palliatus on Pinus sylvestris, were studied in Poland. Fungi were isolated from beetles of H. palliatus and their galleries collected from three populations. In total, 1832 fungal isolates, including 38 species, were obtained. The most important group of fungi were the ophiostomatoid fungi. Among the seven species of ophiostomatoid fungi isolated, Leptographium lundbergii and an unknown species of Graphium sp. code-named "W" were the dominant species. Ophiostoma minus and O. piceae were also relatively common. All ophiostomatoid species, except L. lundbergii occurred more frequently on the overwintered adults than in gallery systems. Ophiostoma minus and O. piliferum are documented here as new associates of H. palliatus.
