During soil fungal surveys in Egypt's New Valley Governorate, four significant fungal isolates from three different species have been reported. Two of these strains were uncovered in Egypt for the first time, while the other two may be potential new species. The four strains were identified as being Paramyrothecium spp. (two strains), Striaticonidium brachysporum, and Metarhizium pingshaense after the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of the isolates was sequenced and matched to the closest match strains in GenBank. The strains in this investigation are being documented for the first time in Egypt. The four strains are briefly described and microscopically displayed in the article.
