Abstract

A new species of Entomophthorales, Ballocephala pedicellata, is reported from tardigrades (Hypsibius dujardini and Diphascon pinguis) living in moss. The new species is closely related to B. sphaerospora but possesses conidia clustered near the conidiophore tip rather than along its length. A key to the entomophthoraceous parasites of nematodes and tardigrades is given.
