Abstract

The first ant-Laboulbenial interaction in Africa is recorded. The fungus Laboulbenia camponoti Batra was detected over the body of workers Camponotus oasium Forel collected in Senegal. This is a huge range extension of its Eurasian previously known distribution, to the Afrotropical region. We present the updated global database for L. camponoti.
