Lecanicillium muscarium (Petch) Zare and W. Gams (2001) (insect pathogen)
The fungus is mainly a biocontrol agent against insect pests and is produced commercially. It has a wide host range and is, for example, used against aphids and whiteflies. The species is also a mycoparasite of certain fungi, see Lecanicillium muscarium (antagonist). It has been suggested that many isolates named Verticillium lecanii (= Lecanicillium lecanii) are actually Lecanicillium muscarium.
