Seventeen species of fungi parasitic on nematodes are newly recorded in Iowa. These are Acrostalagmus obovatus, Arthrobotrys conoides, A. musiformis, A. oligospora, Dactylaria brochopaga, Dactyldla acrochaeta, D. doedycoides, Haptoglossa heterospora, Harposporium anguillulae, H. lilliputanum, H. oxycoracum, Meria coniospora, Nematoctonus tylosporus, Spicaria coccospora, Stylopage grandis, S. leiohypha and Triposporina aphanopaga. A species of Zoophagus which captured nematodes was found in rotting wood and leaf mulch. Arthrobotrys conoides was the most common nematode parasitic fungus found in forage legume fields. It was followed in prevalence by a sterile fungus. In woodlands, A. oligospora predominated followed by Dactylella gephyropaga.
