Aegeritella maroccana is proposed as a new epizoic species on the ant Aphaenogaster baronii (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) from Middle Atlas, Morocco. The presence of single, thick, conical unbranched conidiophores composed of short thick-walled cells of toruloid shape differentiates it from related Aegeritella species. This is a first African record of the genus. © 1990, British Mycological Society. All rights reserved.
