The samples came from the collection ot the Wood Pathology Laboratory of CPPF/INPA in Manaus, Brazil. Altogether, 163 spezies and 87 genera were identified. The following genera Trametes, Auricularia, Panus, Rigidoporus and Hymenochaete were represently by more than 5 species. Auricularia delicata ((Hook.) Underw., Auricularia fuscosuccinea (Mont.)

Sacc., Pachykytospora alabamae (Berk. & Cke.) Ryv., Polyporus infernalis Berk., Stereum fasciatus Schw., and Xylaria telfairii (Berk.) Fr., occurred on naturally fallen trees. The well known parasites as Grammothele fuligo (Berk. & Br.) Ryv., Hypoderma capitatum Erikss. & Hjorst., Phellinus robiniae Murr., Rigidoporus microporus (Fr.)
