Arthrobotrys is a genus of mitosporic fungi in the family Orbiliaceae. There are 71 species. They are predatory fungi that capture and feed on nematode worms. Rings that form on the hyphae constrict and entrap the worms, then hyphae grow into the worm and digest it.

The fungus Arthrobotrys oligospora has multiple lifestyles. It’s not only a nematode pathogen, but also a saprophyte, a pathogen of other fungi, and a colonizer of plant roots. As a nematode pathogen, A. oligospora forms adhesive networks to capture nematodes and is a model organism for understanding the interaction between these fungi and their host nematodes.
