Abstract: Dried shrimps are largely consumed as source of protein in Bangladesh. It has been established that dried shrimp can act as vehicle for transmission of some mycological pathogens. The present study investigated the fungal pathogen associated with dry shrimps. Lichtheimia hyalospora, was identified through morphological characterization based on mycelium, conidia, colony features as well as molecular characterization using internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of fungal ribosomal DNA (rDNA). The genetic analysis of Lichtheimia hyalospora, the ITS region was amplified using ITS4 and ITS5 primers and sequenced. The length of polymorphism at the sequence level of Lichtheimia hyalospora was 721 bp. There is no published research article regarding the studies on the identification and molecular characterization of the associated fungi on shrimps in Bangladesh. To the best of our knowledge, the experimental result concluded that dry shrimps contaminated with saprophytic fungus, Lichtheimia hyalospora is the first report in Bangladesh.
