Abstract:

Total 108 Indian clavarioid fungi belonging to 17 genera were compiled from literature. These fungi are distributed in 13 states of India. Genus Ramaria represent the largest number of species (39) followed by Clavaria (13), Clavulinopsis (12), Clavulina (11) and Typhula (10). Genera like Aphelaria, Artomyces, Deflexula, Gloeocantharellus, Multiclavula and Scytinopogon are least diverse and represented by only one species. Clavarioid fungi were recorded from 131 places of 13 states in India and the maximum diversity of these fungi was shown by the state Uttarakhand (57) followed by Himachal Pradesh (25) and West Bengal (10). Three clavarioid fungi namely, Phaeoclavulina flaccida, Ramariopsis kunzei and R. subtilis were described from Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. Earlier these fungi were reported from Uttarakhand and Chhattisgarh.
