As a grave is an anomalous environment and differs from its surroundings, criminal investigators employ different techniques
for locating, recovering, and analyzing clandestine graves. In this study were identified the fungi found in the soil under corpses in decomposition
with an aim at relating the copresence of human remains and different fungal species. Were isolated the fungi in three ways: soil washing,
serial dilutions, and moist chamber growth. Dichotomomyces cejpii, Talaromyces trachyspermus, Talaromyces flavus, and Talaromyces sp. were
the representative species found—with those belonging to the ammonia group, whose fungi are the first in the succession of cadaver decomposition
directly in the ground. The mycobiota found at the present study area clearly differs to mycobiota identified in control sample and from
previously described species for other areas of Buenos Aires Province, Argentina. Further forensic examples of this type are needed to develop
fully the detailed use of mycology as a forensic tool.
