Abstract A total of 81 fungal endophytes were isolated from four seagrass species: Cymodocea serrulata, Enhalus acoroides, Halophila ovalis and Thalassia hemprichii obtained from southern Thailand. Isolates were identified through phylogenetic analyses of the nuclear ribosomal (r) DNA sequences. The majority of isolates belonged to three fungal classes in the Pezizomycotina: Sordariomycetes (55.6%), Dothideomycetes (38.3%) and Eurotiomycetes (4.9%). One isolate (1.2%) was identified in the Saccharomycetes. All Pezizomycotina isolates were placed among clades of terrestrial fungi known to be fungal endophytes in terrestrial ecosystems, and no isolates were classified among known marine lineages. Phylogenetic community structure analyses revealed differences among the four-co-occurring species of seagrasses. Cymodocea serrulata displayed the lowest phylogenetic diversity (PD) as compared to the other three host species. Endophytic communities of E. acoroides mainly clustered within the Sordariomycetes, while Sordariomycetes and Dothideomycetes were equally dominant as endophytes of T. hemprichii and H. ovalis.
