Twenty-one of 33 fungi tested were found to be hosts of Piptocephalis lepidula. Only fungi within the Mucorales were parasitized, and of the members of this order tested, only Mortierella candelabrum was not a host. Generally, good host growth was required for good parasitism. Defined agar media containing glucose, xylose or maltose as carbon sources and glutamic acid or alanine as nitrogen sources generally supported better host growth and parasitism than media containing other carbon or nitrogen sources.
