The investigation was conducted to find out the fungal diversity in soil samples collected from Loyola college campus, Chennai. In my investigation 25 isolates obtained from the soil samples. Among the 28 isolates 13 were identified with standard key and microbial expert. From the fungal isolates the most of the species belonging to the genera Aspergillus and Mucor were dominant. The identified soil fungi namely Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus clavatus, Aspergillus sydowii, Aspergillus variabilis, Aspergillus fumigatus, Penicillium chrysogenum, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides senu lato, Mucor sp. Rhizopus stolonifer, Rhizopus oryzae, Cunninghamella bertholletiae, Scopulariopsis brumptii, Cladophialophora sp. Among the identified species the Keratinophilic fungi Aspergillus niger found maximum numbers in the campus and followed by Mucor sp.
