A collection of the larval black fly Simulium ochraceum sensu lato Walker was made at six lotic habitats on San Cristobal Island, Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, during May 2003. Sixty-eight larvae were assayed for the presence of gut fungi (Zygomycota: Trichomycetes). A trichomycete, designated as Smittium sp. was found inhabiting the hindgut of 17.6% of S. ochraceum s.l. larvae. Implications of this finding with respect to both host and trichomycete biogeography are discussed.
