Abstract

Taxonomic records of coprophilous fungi from Brazil are revisited. In total, 271 valid species names, including representatives of Ascomycota (187), Basidiomycota (32), Kickxellomycota (2), Mucoromycota (45) and Zoopagomycota (5), are reported from herbivore dung. Identification keys for coprophilous fungi from Brazil are provided, including both recent surveys (2011-2019) and historical literature.
