Monthly samples of water and decaying material were collected from Hanumantal pond, Supatal pond, Gour river and Narmada river. Baiting technique involving seeds of hemp, wheat, rice, oat, mustard; grass blades, apple fruits, nails, snake skin, pine pollen etc, revealed 23 species of zoosporic fungi. Maximum number of species were isolated on snake skin followed by hemp seeds and grass blades. Hanumantal pond revealed highest species richness (15 species) followed by Gour river (13 species), Supatal pond (12 species) and Narmada river (11 species). Seasonal analysis revealed maximum number of species during mansoon and minimum during summer.
