In an investigation of endophytic fungi associated with cherry (Prunus avium L.) in Iran, healthy plant samples including twigs and leaves were collected during autumn of 2013 and spring and summer seasons of 2014. In this study, 10 fungal species including Acremonium sclerotigenum, Aureobasidium microstictum, Chaetomium globosum, Chalastospora gossypii, Clonostachys rosea, Dendrothyrium variisporum, Fusarium sambucinum, Fusarium verticillioides, Trichothecium roseum and Trichurus spiralis were identified as endophytic fungi of cherry trees in Iran. All identified species are reported for the first time as endophytic fungi of cherry trees in the world. The two species including Aureobasidium microstictum and Dendrothyrium variisporum are new taxa for Iran mycoflora.
