Aims: Moth orchid (Phalaenopsis amabilis (L.) Blume) is an species native orchid from Indonesia. Its presence in nature is known to live in symbiosis with endophytic mycorrhiza as a biocontrol agent. In a previous study, one Ceratobasidium isolate from Yogyakarta, Indonesia was successfully isolated based on rDNA-ITS molecular analysis. This study aims to identify these isolates based on morphological analysis. Methodology and results: Verification morphological analysis is carried out by observing macroscopic and microscopic characteristics, as well as observing peloton. The results of the analysis showed that the characterization of Yogyakarta isolates had similarities with Ceratobasidium. These character equations include colony color, cell length, core number, and cell width. The results of the induction of orchids mycorrhiza also showed a peloton structure in cortex cells of orchid root. Conclusion, significance and impact of study: This study confirms that isolates orchids mycorrhiza from Yogyakarta, Indonesia are Ceratobasidium based on morphological and molecular analysis. This research is a conservation and natural protection effort of native orchids in Indonesia using biocontrol. This study is the first to report regarding Ceratobasidium isolated from native tropical orchids in Indonesia based on morphological analysis.
