Abstract: The Polish occurrence and distribution are described and illustrated for five species of the Endogonaceae. Glomus fasciculatum (Thaxter) Gercl. & Trappe emend. Walker & Koske has frequent occurrences throughout the country. Glomus aggregatum Schenck & Smith emend. Koske, G. etunicatum Becker & Geed. and G. occultum Walker probably occur in the whole of Poland as well, although with lower frequencies. All four species were found among both cultivated and natural plants. Acaulospora rugosa Morton was isolated from only 1 of the 152 soil samples studied. The species is new to Europe, having earlier been known only from West Virginia.
