Lophium arboricola is known as a saprotrophic fungus from different substrates, but it was mainly reported from conifers. In this study, two strains of fungi found growing on resin were molecularly identified as Lophium arboricola. The species was isolated from the resin of Picea abies and Abies alba in Poland. It is the first report of L. arboricola from resin substrate and, simultaneously, the first indication of a resinicolous lifestyle of this species. Isolated strains were morphologically characterized. The phylogenetic analysis was conducted based on ITS and LSU rDNA regions. Moreover, it is the first published report of L. arboricola from Poland.
