A report on an examination of residential garbage soil in Jabalpur, for Hyphomycetes fungi by mouse passage and direct plating methods is presented. A total of 389 isolates represented 39 genera and 95 species of which Aspergillus was the most frequent (59.15%) followed by Candida (21.15%), Fusarium (21.9 %), Mucor (18.43%), Rhizopus (16.5%), which were most frequently isolated.
