Abstract

Nonpolar methylene chloride-soluble extracts from the mycelia of Fusarium semitectum and Fusarium moniliforme var. subglutinans were toxic to Colorado potato beetles. The major toxic metabolite was isolated and found to be the cyclodepsipeptide, beauvericin. This is the first report of the isolation of beauvericin from the genus Fusarium.
