These catalog files are in the Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format
and are readable with the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
NOTE: All catalogs and live searches of isolate data incorporate
the most current supportable taxonomies for ARSEF fungi.
These changed taxonomies are most notable for the teleomorphic (sexual)
and anamorphic (conidial) stages of ascomycetes in the Hypocreales
and are discussed the introductory material in the catalogs.
If you are unsure about the most current identifications for isolates,
online searches of ARSEF accessions return taxonomic information
in the collection database at the moment of the search.
All available isolates, fully indexed (556 pages; 6.0 MB)
Complete indexes from the current catalog (241 pages; 5.6 MB)
Many ARSEF clients prefer to receive lyophilized (freeze-dried) units rather than petri plates of actively growing isolates. The following files list isolates are available in freeze-dried form. Isolates are listed by their ARSEF accession number or by their Fungus Key (an acronym of the species’ name). The Fungus Keys file prodices the identifying codes used in these lists and the full taxonomic authorities for all fungi in the ARSEF collection.
NOTE: The information in these files cannot be obtained
from online searches of the ARSEF collection.
