Abstract

About 25 fungal organisms were identified from paper and surface of wooden table which were soaked in incessant rain water inside the lab. The fungal organisms formed beautiful eye-catching colonies of different colours.Various species of Aspergillus, Penicillium, Cladosporium and some interesting Hyphomycetes like Dictyoarthrenium and Dictyosporium were identified. They were isolated and maintained on PDA for examination and for further studies. The spores of these colonies in the air may be responsible for the bronchial problems and allergies of the skin and various health hazards. The organisms were found to be growing in a small area of 50 X 25 cms on wood and 30 X 20 cms on paper.
