Summary of "Metarhizium humberi sp. nov. (Hypocreales: Clavicipitaceae), a new member of the PARB clade in the Metarhizium anisopliae complex from Latin America."

A new species, Metarhizium humberi, from the M. anisopliae complex and sister lineage of the M. anisopliae s.str. in the PARB clade, including M. pingshaense, M. anisopliae, M. robertsii and M. brunneum, is described based on phylogenetic analyses [translation elongation factor 1-alpha (5́TEF and 3́TEF), RNA polymerase II largest subunit (RPB1a), RNA polymerase II second largest subunit (RPB2a) and β-tubulin (BTUB)]. Metarhizium humberi was first collected in 2001 in the Central Brazilian state of Goiás, later found to be a common fungus in soils in Brazil, and since then has also been isolated from coleopteran, hemipteran and lepidopteran insects in Brazil and Mexico. This new species, named in honor of Richard A. Humber, a well-known insect pathologist and taxonomist of entomopathogenic fungi, is characterized by a high insecticidal activity against different developmental stages of arthropod pests with importance in agriculture and vectors of diseases to human and animals.
