The lung tissue of 180 rodents belonging to five species, trapped at 17 fishponds in the Studenec area (district of Třebíč) in 1991-1992, was examined for the presence of adiaspores of Emmonsia parva var. crescens(Emmons et Jellison) van Oorschot. The overall prevalence of adiasporomycosis was high, 30%, but its distribution varied markedly according to rodent species (Clethrionomys glareolus 45%, Apodemus flavicollis 56%, A. sylvaticus 26%, Microtus agrestis 13%, M. arvalis 9% ) and fishpond (’Donát’ 61%, ’Cikovec’ 28% ’Štičí’ 27%, ’Hlad’ 19%, other ponds 14% ). During a year, the highest infection rate (53%) wasfound in the rodents captured in March and April, compared with 21% to 25% of infected animals in the other seasons of the year.
