Phyllosphere fungus is a fungus that attaches or moreover enters a tissue of the host. Mostly, the fruiting body that grows on the soil or other substrate openly can be colonized by the phyllosphere fungi. Lysurus periphragmoides was found on the soil. The fruiting body was opened on the head part and the holy structure on the stem part. Fungal isolation from the stem was conducted with surface sterilization before cultivating onto PDA medium. The filamentous fungus (isolate Lyz111) was appeared on isolation medium and identified as Fusarium equiseti using multigene analysis (ITS and LSU regions). This is the first report that Fusarium equiseti have been found as phyllosphere fungus on Lysurus periphragmoides fruiting body.
