Abstract
An ovarian mycosis in a topsmelt, Atherinops affinis (Ayres), collected from Ellchorn Slough, Monterey County, California, is reported. The fungus caused a considerable host response resulting in numerous granulomas, fibrosis and egg compression. Based on morphologic characteristics and the elimination of other fungal pathogens the fungus is probably a member of the class Oomyletes. This is the first report of an invasive ovarian mycosis in a marine fish.
