Six new hosts of Claviceps have been recorded and the fungal characters on these hosts are described. These fungi fall into one or the other of the groups previously recorded by Thomaset al. (1945) for the ergots occurring in South India. A slight modification of the grouping adopted by Thomaset al. (1945-1) in classifying the ergots by the conidial characters, has been made. Wild and exotic species of sorghum were infected by Sphacelia sorghi.
