Twelve fungal species were isolated from the seeds of 13 forest medicinal plants. Most of the fungi were saprophytic and few were pathogenic. Fungi like Mucorglobosum, Mucor varienc and Rhizopus nigricans appeared on the first day after plating the seeds in the plates. Maximum fungi were isolated on the seeds of Holarrina antidisentrica with lesser number on seeds of Jatropha curcas and Caesalpinia bonducella. Rich sporulation of all the fungi was observed from 6 th day of incubation period.
