Fungal succession on dung of the brush-tailed opossum in New Zealand

The seasonal cycles of the regular fungal flora on the dung are discussed. Some fungi, such as #Ascozonus woolhopensis# were markedly seasonal in their occurrence, others did not show such a marked seasonal pattern. However, the fungus flora as a whole followed a predictable seasonal cycle with maximum fruiting of the species in winter and minimum in summer.
