Twenty-one species, belonging to eleven genera, were isolated from samples of pinewoodsoil. Trichoderma spp. and Botrytis cinerea preponderated, followed by Penicillia and members of the Mucorales. Most of the species have been found in various soils by other investigators, and may be regarded as characteristic of acid forest soils in temperate climates. There appeared to be little or no difference between samples taken at four-inch and at ten-inch depths, the same species being present in both samples. A new species of Mortierella is described.
