Abstract: Non-basidiomycetous fungi were isolated from the wood of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) from 30 localities in Finland. They include blue-stain fungi, soil fungi and coprophilous and nematophagous fungi. The commonest fungus species were wind-borne blue-staining fungi. Fungi occurring with a frequency of more than 1% were Aureobasidium pullulans (de Bary) Arnaud, Cladosporium cladosporioides (Fres.) de Vries, Geomyces pannorum (Link) Sigler & Carm., Leptodontidium beauverioides (de Hoog) de Hoog, Oidiodendron cerealis (Thüm.) Barron, Ophiostoma piceae (Münch) H. & P. Syd., O. piliferum (Fr.) H. & P. Syd., Phialophora fastigiata (Lagerb. & Melin) Conant, Rhinocladiella atrovirens Nannf., Trichoderma polysporum (Link) Rifai, T. viride Pers. and Ulocladium consortiale (Thüm.) Simmons. As many as 35 species are apparently new to Finland, three of these belonging to the Zygomycotina, six to the Ascomycotina and 26 to the Deuteromycotina.
