Abstract:
A study was conducted to prepare the mycelial cultures of wild macrofungi from the Langate Forest Division of Kashmir. A total of 10 mycelial cultures of macrofungi were prepared. Most of the cultures had colony colour White and its different shades while few had different coloured colonies e.g., brown in Morchella esculenta, pale pinkish in Hericium collarides, White with pinkish bands in Candolleomyces candolleanus (syn. Psathyrella spadiceogrisea) and pale yellowish in Mycena pura. The colony form varied from circular to irregular, filamentous to rhizoidal. Four colonies were circular in form, four were of filamentous form and one each was of irregular and rhizoidal forms. The colony elevation varied between flat in four colonies, Raised in two, Crateriform in two and one colony each having umbonate and convex forms. The colony margins were of three types filiform in five colonies, entire in three and lobate in two colonies. The growth rate varied between 2.8 mm to 13 mm per day with the colony of Pleurotus citrinopileatus being fastest growing and that of Entoloma vernum the slowest.
