Collections of the moss Leptodictyum riparium (Hedw.) Warnst. taken over several years from near Bonito Lake, New Mexico, were heavily parasitized by the fungus Stemphyllium botryosum Wallr. Masses of hyphae were imbedded in the central strand of the host stem with the numerous conidia erupting only from the axil of the leaves. This is the first report of a moss parasitized by this species of fungus.
