One Laboulbenia species is added to the checklist of Italian fungi. Laboulbenia camponoti was detected on the ant Camponotus aethiops. Additionally, L. formicarum was found on a new host (Lasius Niger) in France. An updated map of world distribution for the two Laboulbenia is presented. Based on present knowledge, L. camponoti shows a much higher structural and phylogenetic host specificity than L. formicarum.
- Camponotus aethiops
- Lasius Niger
