Background: Entomopathogenic fungi are one of the potential biodiversity assets to be used as biological control agents. However, information about the diversity of entomopathogenic fungi, especially in the Gunung Tukung Gede (GTG) nature reserve, is very limited. This study aimed to provide information on the biodiversity of entomopathogenic fungi in the GTG nature reserve.Methods: The entomopathogenic fungi were explored from 3 different stations: primary forest, secondary forest, and disturbed forest. Entomopathogenic fungi were isolated identified both macroscopically and microscopically. Results: A total of 15 specimens of entomopathogenic fungi consisting of 5 families and 8 types of fungi were successfully isolated. The entomopathogen fungi were Basidiobolus haptosporus, Beauveria bassiana., Metarhizium aniesophalie, Paecilomyces sp., Aschersonia sp., Aspergillus sp. 1, Aspergillus sp.2, and Septobasidium sp. These fungi infect insect hosts from the orders Lepidoptera, Hemiptera and Homoptera. The index of the diversity of entomopathogenic fungi at 3 consecutive stations is 1.5495; 1.3322; and 0.6365 (medium category).Conclusions: The GTG Nature Reserve has a diversity of entomopathogenic fungi. Therefore, further research is needed to determine the diversity and potential utilization of the existing entomopathogenic fungi.
