Four new and interesting coprophilous Hyphomycetes are described from India: (1) Sympodina coprophila gen. et sp. n. isolated from goat dung from Jaipur; this fungus produces 2-celled, brown, solitary, dry blastospores developing acrogenously at the tips of conidiophores and at their sympodially produced successive growing points; (2) Adhogamina ruchira gen. et sp. n. isolated from pony dung from Rishikesh; the fungus produces one-celled, brown, solitary, dry blastospores without longitudinal germ slit developing in basipetal order on conidiophores; (3) Bahupaathra samala gen. et sp. n. occurring on cow dung from Chakrata; the fungus produces distinct, erect, intricately branched conidiophores with fertile and sterile branches and one-celled slimy phialospores forming globose masses at the tips of characteristic collarettes; and (4) Angulimaya sundara gen. et sp. n. occurring on cow dung from Chakrata; the fungus produces erect conidiophores bearing crowded clusters of annellophores from which one-celled conidia are produced in simple dry basipetal chains. The forms are compared with related genera.
