Abstract

Sand buried wood materials were collected from the beaches of Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry and screened for marine fungi. A total of 27 arenicolous marine fungi were encountered including 19 Ascomycetes, 1 Basidiomycete and 7 Mitosporic fungi. The present study records the maximum number of arenicolous marine fungi reported so far. Ceriosporopsis capillacea, Dryosphaera tropicalis and Savoryella appendiculata, are new record for Pondicherry, Corollospora colossa and Corollospora indica from Tamil Nadu and Corollospora gracilis from Kerala.
