Mucor amphibiorum is reported for the first time from a free-ranging native amphibian, a green tree frog (Litoria caerulea) from Queensland, Australia. The nasal cavity was largely replaced by granulomatous inflammatory tissue, and most internal organs had nodular granulomas. Typical mother and daughter sphaerules of M. amphibiorum occurred in these nodules which were due to granulomatous inflammation as well as areas of more active mixed inflammation with necrosis. Tissue homogenate from the spleen was inoculated into two cane toads (Bufo marinus), and one toad became infected with M. amphibiorum.
