Four strains of Allescheria boydii have been isolated from soil collected in Williamson County, Tennessee. A spore suspension of one of these strains when mixed with gastric mucin was found to be pathogenic for mice. A tabulation of all recorded isolations of A. boydii has been presented and the habitats of other human pathogenic fungi have been discussed.
