Abstract

The authors investigated aquatic fungi on the carapaces of dead zooplankton organisms belonging to Cladocera, Copepoda and Rotatoria in the water of two trophically different lakes - the eutrophic Lake Leszczewek and the mesotrophic Lake Wigry. 49 species of aquatic fungi were found - 21 species in Lake Leszczewek and 33 species in Lake Wigry. The smallest number of fungi (23 species) grew on the carapaces of Copepoda, the largest on the Cladocera. Moreover, seven zoosporic fungus species were found new to Polish hydromycology. The results obtained for plankton Crustacea were compared with data for crayfish.
